Sometimes the most challenging path is the one that leads you home.
When a young Innu boy returns to his childhood home for the summer holidays, he finds a culture he no longer recognizes. Worlds collide and civilizations connect when Ashini’s search for his grandmother’s lost necklace transports him to 7th-century Japan, where he meets a young girl with a very special destiny.
Puppetry and live music lead audiences on an intrepid journey of courage and self-discovery.

* Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members who benefit from a more relaxed sensory experience and environment, including those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. They’re also a good way to experience the theatre for the first time! These shows are for everyone, many people choose to attend because they prefer a more inclusive environment at the theatre.
What can you expect? Junior’s relaxed performances will have a more casual approach to noise and movement inside the theatre, the house lights will stay on at a lower level, and the intensity of the performance’s sound, light, or other effects will be reduced.
