Superior Theatre Festival’s operations reside in the Robinson-Superior Treaty Territory which has been built on the traditional lands of the Ojibwe people of Fort William First Nation.  

For a long time, this region was traditionally used as a summer gathering area, just as we are gathered now and we would like to offer our respect and gratitude to the original caretakers of this land: the elders and ancestors - the Ojibwe people, also known as the Anishinaabe, meaning ‘first or original people’.  Miigwetch for allowing us to gather here today.

At Superior Theatre Festival we are committed to building relationships with the First Nation People in this community and will continue to build that relationship each year so they feel comfortable and welcomed within our institution.  Our sincere goal is to honour that relationship by walking hand in hand, together.

Superior Theatre Festival is back, fully live and in-person, after two years. From July 21st-24th our sixth annual festival features movement and improv workshops, two performances of the interactive modern dance piece “Possibilities of Dialogue” at Magnus Theatre, and a weekend full of local talent in the Spirit Garden, all presented with the unifying theme of “Rise Together”.
