Roll For Initiative
By Kunji Ikeda
A Cloudsway Dance Theatre Production with development support from Quest Theatre
Presented by Quest Theatre
Set in the fantasy genre of a tabletop role-playing game, Teiji an Orcish Fighter, Udnadkat a Human Cleric, and Fane Farstool an Elven Wizard make up an experienced adventure party. As the cohesive group prepares for an upcoming encounter with their most feared rival, the evil Gorgahn-noth, it becomes clear that Tejii’s abilities as a half-orc are misunderstood and misrepresented. Roll for Initiative delicately unwraps a nuanced conversation of racially based assumptions that our community increasingly longs to understand.
When: April 5, April 6, April 8
Where: cSPACE Marda Loop Studio Theatre, 1721 29th Ave SW, Calgary AB, T2T 6T7
Cloudsway Dance Theatre and Quest Theatre
