The Neptune Studio Theatre is transformed into a fabulous world of white and grey for Shahin Sayadi's new play Hawk. It's a set that enfolds the audience beneath fabric wings and provides the perfect backdrop for videoscapes by Nicholas Bottomley. Hawk is the story of a young Mi'kmaq man (played by Daniel Knight) who feels torn between life in Halifax with his lawyer/politician father (Gordon Patrick White) and life on the reserve with his mother (Monique Mojica) and sister (PJ Prudat). The reserve feeds his soul and creativity, while the city offers him a place to produce his music. The plot is simple, but woven together in such a way that it resonates on many levels. It's a story about the complexities of family, belonging and love that has a universal appeal. It's visually stunning, and memorable, and is produced as part of the Prismatic Performing and Visual Arts Festival.

To Sep 29, Neptune Studio Theare, 1593 Argyle St, $18-25,
