Full Circle First Nations Performance
Full Circle speaks of many images...
- Full gathering of people - all races, cultures, communities, perspectives

- the completion of a journey
- unceasing movement - no beginning or ending.

Full Circle creates opportunities for Aboriginal artists, writers and performers to express the reality of First Nations experiences and to work in harmony with First Nations traditions while engaging contemporary, interdisciplinary theatrical techniques.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man - Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world's first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary's name came from the group's early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member. (source: www.rotaryinternational.org)
