Whiteface

 

Review


Whiteface is a performance by two Indigenous actors pretending to play white people who are playing Indigenous roles. Confused? Uncomfortable? That’s the goal that this show embarks upon. The actors don multiple masks within the course of 45-minutes, each representing the stereotypes, the struggles, and ultimately the truths in our reality today.  Hard-hitting and emotionally-driven, the performance primarily focuses on physical movement to convey its messages and uses dialogue sparingly, yet effectively. The show is funny in some moments, yet teeming with anger in other scenes. As an audience member, you will experience the raw emotion that is displayed onstage. Whiteface will leave you questioning the stereotypes that are reinforced in every culture and the consequences that they have.  – Janelle Escott
