Meet Nakota. A young boy who is sick in the hospital and trying to write the greatest story ever. One day, Grandpa Rocko comes for a visit. Next thing Nakota knows, he is whisked away into a world of stories that are right below his feet. Within the land. This show explores the interplay between stories of the present against the long-forgotten stories of the past. It is a powerful marriage of storytelling and transformatively moving dialogue.


Rocko and Nakota: Tales from the Land, written and performed by Indigenous artist Josh Languedoc, is a compelling one-man show named among the Top 6 Picks of the Fringe in Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Vancouver

“His ability to breathe new life into traditional Indigenous stories (complete with seamlessly inserted Metallica and Blue Rodeo lyrics) is a gift to see in person.”
