Agokwe: Unplugged

agokwe unplugged event poster.jpg

Written and performed by Waawaate Fobister. 

Agokwe explores unrequited love between teenage boys from neighbouring reserves. Mike is a hockey player and Jake is a traditional dancer. The boys notice each other at the Kenora Shoppers Mall and ultimately connect through a mutual love of movement while Mike is skating and Jake is dancing “like grass blowing in the wind.” They meet briefly at a post hockey-tournament party where they bashfully confess their desire for each other. However – youth, distance and isolation strive to pull the threads apart when tragedy intervenes. AGOKWE speaks to bullying, homophobia, unrequited love, social isolation and the lost traditions of the Anishnaabe.

“Agokwe is a magnetic plea for tolerance and action” – Georgia Straight

“Agokwe tells a powerful tale about gay love on the rez” –Vancouver Observer

“Waawaate Fobister brings down the house...” –NOW Magazine
