Re-Quickening

Bold new work by Kaha:wi Dance Theatre
Kaha:wi Dance Theatre

 

Kaha:wi Dance Theatre premieres a bold, timely, sonically and visually arresting performance April 28-May 1 as part of Harbourfront Centre’s 2015/16 Next Steps dance series.  

From a post-colonial perspective, Re-Quickening reconstructs feminine power through performance, music and art. 

“By piecing together fragments and shards of indigenous knowing, this production acts as a reaffirmation of life and healing from issues of violence against women and the earth,” says Kaha:wi Dance Theatre Artistic Director Santee Smith.

The multidisciplinary work features a powerhouse team of international indigenous women collaborators including Smith (Kenien’keha:ka/Mohawk Nation), Monique Mojica (Guna, Rappahannock Nations), Marina Acevedo (Zapotec descent), Frances Rings (Kokatha Tribe descent), Louise Potiki-Bryant (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Mamoe and Waitaha descent, Māori), Bianca Hyslop (Te Arawa, Ngati Whakaue, Maori), Nancy Wijohn (Te Rarawa, Tuhoe/Ngati Paoa, Ngati Tahu, Māori) and Cris Derkson (Cree descent), to name a few.

Kaha:wi Dance Theatre is a leading contemporary dance company in Canada, exploring intersections of indigenous and new dance performance. Learn more >> kahawidance.org
