*Performances can be performed with a First Nations cultural worker or story-teller. I have given these artists complete freedom of artistic expression within the theme of the shows to bring part of their cultural tradition to the performance. I feel the artistic trust that this gesture implies also increases the potential for a unique and personal start to every performance and introduces the audience to part of the community they may have little understanding about.

Note: This would require an additional honorarium $100.00

*A Brief Canadian History does not cover travel costs outside the island of Montreal.
