Tune in to the live broadcast!

Cherish Violet Blood hosts an all-night immersive theatrical production for a distinctively Blackfoot spin on colonial history, live from the Campbell House Museum, located in Toronto’s justice precinct. Based on late night entertainment talk shows, Blood casts the spotlight on storytelling with under-the-radar stories about race, gender and class featuring invited friends, live music, and recorded video. The event lineup takes shifting audiences into consideration with an animated flow of activity and scheduled programming in various rooms throughout the night such as midnight tea and a sunrise welcome. This 12-hour intervention makes space to present indigenous voices that unapologetically resist a Canadian narrative for roaming insomniacs alike.
