Impressions from Montréal’s Festival TransAmériques - Part II

Three works from Mette Ingvartsen, Jocelyne Montpetit and Rachid Ouramdane By Mark Mann

Mini-reviews of works in Montréal’s Festival TranAmériques (FTA) - Ingvartsen’s 7 Pleasures, Montpetit’s Runaway Girl and Ouramdane’s Tordre. Part two of two of The Dance Current’s FTA 2017 coverage.

 

Ancestralizing the Present

Ancestralizing the Present was a free event hosted at The Dance Centre on June 10, 2017, with performances by Spakwus Slulem (Eagle Song Dancers), Git Hayetsk (People of the Copper Shield) and Aeriosa. The event marks the culmination of Mique’l Dangeli’s doctoral thesis “Dancing Sovereignty: Protocol and Politics in Northwest Coast First Nations Dance” and it involved “taking the time to get to know one another” – an approach that Dangeli believes to be closer to “reconciliation” than projects that simply tick the boxes of inclusivity, or demand that Indigenous artists perform settlers’ expectations of Indigenous culture.
