    A German corporation wants to bring modernity and civilisation to an Anishinaabe community by building a theme park called OjibwayWorld They mix different tribal traditions together ignore Indigenous perspectives and centre themselves and their egos all the time At first the Anishinaabe community almost unanimously agrees to the Germans‘ proposition despite all the inaccuracies and insensitivities due to the social issues that prevail in that community However as time progresses they realise that this project has less to do with them than with white savourism A protest and huge buffalobison stampede ensues Drew Hayden Taylor‘s play about Germans‘ problematic engagement with Indigenous peoples and cultures is fast paced super punchy and too hilarious for its own good Particularly the caricaturist portrayal of his characters is truly outstanding and on point This is a MUST READ for all Germans who are interested in being allies to Indigenous peoples This is our manual on how NOT TO treat Indigenous peoples and cultures

    Ah aboriginal humour Earthy pun oriented often scatological in nature Excellent You may continue Birgit one of the two German characters in The Berlin Blues by Drew Hayden TaylorThus is much of the humour in this funny little play summarized At two or three laughs per page this was a wonderfully irreverent and upbeat story hiding a meaningful core just below its silly surface German developers approach an Ojibway village in Ontario Canada to build a theme park The locals are a little torn but could use the money A year later there is a gigantic laser beam dreamcatcher towering over the forest to their East and their loveable and eccentric unemployed drunk is now dressing fancy and ordering people around I would love to see this play performed as community theatre on a Rez I expect the reception would be raucousFour stars feels a little bit generous especially after reading Steinbeck and Harold Pinter so recently However I know that this book was not aiming to become classic literature and I believe it came very close to exactly where it aimed to be sex and drug jokes and all

    This is the first play by Canadian First Nation playwright Drew Hayden Taylor that I have come across and read but it certainly won't be the lastThe Berlin Blues is a tight drama for six primary actors that projects a grand scheme and what grand schemes can do to regular people The play is set in a First Nation Reserve in Canada belonging to the Ojibway and the story involves two Germans representing an organisation that wants to build a Native American theme park Ojibway World and four Ojibway who all react differently to this offerFunny and thought provoking offering a human take on the pros and cons of change and just how much one can or should give up to prosper The Berlin Blues gives us samples of Dances with Wolves The Musical a buffalo it's really Bison ask the Germans stampede and a huge laser dreamcatcherWell worth reading and I imagine seeing

    German developers descend on Otter Lake Reserve to build Ojibway World a Native American theme park It had it's moments and was amusing I did not think it was as good as some of his other plays in the Blues uartet
