Remains is a script that ﬁnds it’s home within Shkagamik-Kwe’s Project Uncle. Project Uncle is, at it’s heart, a celebration of Indigenous men. What you will see this evening is how playwright Sarah Gartshore is attempting to ﬁnd balance with male and female energies in the creation process. Remains is song, celebration, and a low rumbling. We have all experienced loss but it is not always easy to identify what was lost, cut or ripped from our lives. To begin their healing journey Dust and Bone must rumble with their truths and identify the remains.
