Asivak’s Own Creation Story is a play following the journey of OtTaNaFayCaSo, a quirky Inninew (Cree) boy and a spirited Inuk girl named Ikualaaq. They carry differing Indigenous world views, and their unexpected union forces them to overcome their differences as ancestral enemies. Spirit, a powerful shapeshifting gender fluid being uses their spiritual influence to bring these two stubborn souls together to fulfill a sacred prophecy.
