Agokwe explores unrequited love between teenaged boys from neighbouring reserves. Mike is a hockey player and Jake is a dancer. The boys notice each other at the Kenora Shoppers Mall and ultimately connect through a mutual love of movement while Mike skates and Jake dances "like grass blowing in the wind." Playing these and many more characters through the iconic multifarious persona of Nanabush The Trickster, 23-year-old Ojibwa playwright/performer Waawaate Fobister delivers a multi-award winning tour-de-force. Agokwe is a remarkable testament to the joys and tragedies of growing up marginalized by race and sexuality within a small rural community.
