Fatty Legs - School Performance - SOLD OUT

Thursday, November 2 at 1 p.m.

Oakville Centre, Willson Auditorium

Presented by Xara Choral Theatre Ensemble

The true story of an Indigenous girl’s resilience at Residential School. 

Fatty Legs is set in Canada’s far north and is the story of Olemaun Pokiak who dreams of learning to read. But when she arrives at Residential School she is given the name Margaret, has her long braids cut off, and is made to wear itchy red wool socks as an example of her “unworthiness.” Treated cruelly by classmates and teachers, Margaret devises a plan to ensure the red stockings won’t cause her any more humiliation. Based on a true story, this show combines ethereal singing, engaging narration, and contemporary Indigenous dance in its adaptation of the book Fatty Legs by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak Fenton.
