New York-based Indigenous theater company tours to Cloquet

Spiderwoman Theater and the ‘Misdemeanor Dream’

'Misdemeanor Dream' is a weaving of Indigenous stories playing at the Cloquet High School.

The New York City’s indigenous and feminist theatre company, Spiderwoman Theater, is taking its touring production of Misdemeanor Dream to Cloquet High School as part of a residency with Fond Du Lac Tribal and Community College and Northland College.

The show is Friday and Saturday, March 1 & 2 at & p.m. Individual tickets are $25 online.

The show is developed through an ensemble and is rooted in Indigenous oral storytelling. Audience can expect personal and communities stories- spoken, danced, and sung- through five different original languages from the nations of the artists.

Spiderwoman Theater is in its 47th consecutive season, making it the oldest native theater company in the Americas. Muriela and Gloria Miguel grew up in a Native enclave in Brooklyn, and started Spiderwoman in 1976 in New York.
