Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 6, 1973 Wins critical acclaim Indian experiences in cities basis of pT EDINBURGH (CP) A pow- erful Canadian play about the experience of Indians in Can- ada's cities has won critical ac- claim at the Edinburgh Festival for its angry portrayal of "the true plight of North American Indians." The play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, by George Ryga, was given its British premiere here Tuesday by the Western Canada Youth Theatre of Kamloops, B.C., appearing in the unofficial program of festival activities known as "the Fringe.'1 Edinburgh's leading news- paper, The Scotsman, says Ryga, a native of Summerland, B.C., has "Built up with pow- erful imagery, the iron impasss that has been reached where the crushing steamroller of 'civ- ilization' has all but ended verdant natural impulses of In- dian culture." Scotsman critic Kevin Done says Ryga's "great achieve- ment" is to focus attention and understanding on "the true plight of North American In- dians (which) has long lain ob- scured under the fantasies of the film western, or ignored in the official teaching versions of the conquest of Canada. The central role cf Rita Joe. a young Indian girl who leaves the reserve to try to find work in the city, is "a symbol of the whole Indian says Done, and her protrayal by Su- san Ringwood has "a moving and sensitive strength." Although the play has some faults, says the Scotsman critic, notably a certain long-wind- edness in the court scenes, at his best Ryga counterpoints the forces of nature and sterility in a way that recalls the gypsy ballads of the Spanish poet Fed- erico Garcia Lorca. who was shot in the Spanish Civil War. A spokesman for the Cana- dian company said the audience had visibly responded to the im- pact of the play. "It was obvious from the ap- plause how much it had gone he said. First produced at the Van- couver Playhouse in 1967. Rita Joe was subsequently adapted as a ballet by the Royal Winni- peg Ballet and has played in many North American centres. Earlier in its festival reper- toire, the Kamloops Company performed The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Bertold Brecht's gangster parable on the'life of Adolf Hitler. This also received a favorable review and the pro- duction was a sellout, said a company spokesman. TV HIGHLIGHTS Local Initiatives Program is even more local. This year, million is going to be invested in helping people help themselves. Only this year the emphasis is on helping people help themselves and their community. If yours is a typical community, we're putting the "local" into Local Initia- tives setting up a Constituency Advisory Group, or by having LIP. staff consult with already established groups. So now you help decide which projects will contribute most to everybody. On the Constituency Advisory Group will sit a good representation from the community, including people active in community affairs, people from local gov- ernment and social agencies, and LIP. sponsors from last year, all suggested by yourMP. Your project could have up to to work with, if your idea is a highly creative and innovative one, because next to "local" this year's L.IP. stresses imagination most. Now for the rules. To qualify for LIP. funds, your project must create not less than 15 man-months of employment. Workers with the skills required for your project must be available within your community. Project sponsors must hire all employees through Canada Manpower Centres. Deadline for applications is October 15th, 1973, though early submis- sions could result in projects starting as early as December 1st. Projects may be funded for up to six months. There's Do-it-Yourself Business L.I.P., too, for companies which want to provide facilities or services for their communities. Projects are not to be related to business operations, and must create additional jobs. So make a do-it-yourself job. And help your community make a lot of do-it- yourself jobs. All it takes is one good idea. Applications available now at your nearest Canada Manpower Centre, DO-IT-YOURSELF LIP GET A GOOD IDEA AND GET FT GROWING.
