â€˜The Drum is Calling You Home’ is a fusion of traditional story telling, concert, ceremony and theatre. This new play in development, written and performed by Marcel Gagnon, takes the audience on a journey of the human spirit depicted in four rounds. Each round tells Marcelâ€™s story from a young man discovering his aboriginal roots to making peace with the inner callings of his heritage and the desires that propels him forward to build a meaningful life. This story is an awakening of one manâ€™s spirit to his community and to is roots. It gives the audience a glimpse into what it not only means to be aboriginal, but what it means to be human, the difficult choices each of us are face within the raw and challenging realities of life. The decision to follow his heart and spirit leading him home, is echoed from within.
