Red Sky Performance: A group of shirtless people with their backs the camera holding up a woman facing the sky. She has a white cloth wrapped around her and white body paint on her arms and shoulders. She reaches up to the sky and her hair hangs down to the ground. The background is grey.

Trace

Trace is a highly kinetic contemporary dance work influenced by Anishinaabe sky and star stories, offering a glimpse into our origins as well as our future evolution. We are traceable to the beginnings of the universe, our ancestral origins stretching across the Milky Way to the atoms burning inside of us in the here and now.

Trace is a highly kinetic contemporary dance work influenced by Anishinaabe sky and star stories, offering a glimpse into our origins as well as our future evolution.

We are traceable to the beginnings of the universe, our ancestral origins stretching across the Milky Way to the atoms burning inside of us in the here and now.

We explore the “traces” of what has come before us, mapping the past, tracing our lineage, demystifying the secrets of our DNA, and uncovering the visible marks of what we leave behind, such as a footprint, a fossil, or a scar.

For tens of thousands of years, the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (Canada & USA) have mapped the night sky, studied the stars, and established an expansive multiverse view of the world. Our sky and star stories hold our worldview and cultural psyche. illuminating our profound belief that we are related to all of creation. We are a part of the universe, and it is a part of us.

A huge thank you to Randy Glynn and to the incredible team at Live Art Dance. Chi-miigwetch to wisdom keepers, cultural astronomers and astrophysicists Wilfred Buck, Annette Lee, Daniella Scalice and Michael Wassegiizhig Price for being involved in our process. We deeply thank all of our relations and the Indigenous people of this land.
