More Than Dance, We Are a Movement
Red Sky Performance
April 14–20, 2021
Digidance is proud to offer a new film celebrating Red Sky Performance’s 20th anniversary story as a leading company of contemporary Indigenous performance in Canada and worldwide. More Than Dance, We Are a Movement contains excerpts from their award-winning work Trace and Miigis, and interviews with collaborators who have participated in this remarkable journey.
This film captures the creative drive of founder and Artistic Director Sandra Laronde and the exceptional artistic vision that propelled Red Sky Performance to prominence and critical acclaim.
Trace a highly kinetic contemporary dance work inspired by Indigenous (Anishinaabe) sky and star stories. Our ancestral origins stretch across the Milky Way to the atoms burning inside of us in the here and now. Trace a glimpse into our origin as the star people as well as our future evolution.
Miigis represents “the perfect breath” of life, a symbol that informs our origin story of travel from the Atlantic Coast to the Great Lakes. Fusing contemporary Indigenous dance with athleticism in an extraordinary form, Miigis explores the catalysts for movement, ancestral forces and living memory, and the cycle of life.
Stream available only to residents of Canada.
This Digidance livestream is an initiative of DanceHouse (Vancouver), Danse Danse (Montreal), Harbourfront Centre (Toronto), and the National Arts Centre (Ottawa), co-presented with Springboard Performance (Calgary).
