Tickets are available NOW online at www.fstalaska.org

Time Immemorial, by Allison Warden and Jack Dalton
"In the beginning, there was the Light. Then, there was Tulu and Miti. And then . . . history happened."

"Time Immemorial follows two spirits, Tulu and Miti, raven and eagle, as the are born and reborn troughout all of Alaska Native history, from Creation, through pre-contact, arrival of missionaries, the Great Death, boarding school, statehood, ANCSA, oil development/global climate change, and other modern challenges. Written by and starring Alaska Native artists Allison Warden and Jack Dalton, they each play nine different characters, brothers, husband and wife, elder and child, sisters, mother and son, father and daughter, grandmother and grandson. You'll laugh through your tears, and, we hope, in the end, you'll see our ancestors as they really were, real human beings doing the best they can.

"We humbly ask you to join us for this once in a lifetime experience, one weekend only! We were here in Fairbanks on February 5th for a staged reading, and now we have returned with the full production which includes lights, sound, props and a set! Our tour so far has been received enthusiastically and we are excited to give back to the Fairbanks community. Time Immemorial was workshopped and revised in 2009 at Native Voices at the Autry, in San Diego, and is now a development play at Native Voices, with its first equity production in Los Angeles in 2012. Time Immemorial has already toured Homer and Palmer, and is going to tour Fairbanks, Anchorage, Nome, Valdez and possibly Kotzebue. Don't miss this chance!" - Allison & Jack.
