A manidoons collective production
As part of One Yellow Rabbit’s 33rd annual High Performance Rodeo

January 18 – 20, 2019
At West Village Theatre

“This work is so honest, unflinching, and raw, it will take your breath away.

bug is a story about the women in an Indigenous family navigating addiction and inter-generational trauma. Using movement, poetry, and prose, creator/performer Yolanda Bonnell weaves the stories of these women, who are grappling with a painful past and who are making tough choices to survive. When the addictions manifest as manidoons (Ojibwe word for bug, insect or worm), this creature burrows beneath her skin, pushing her beyond the brink.”
