Silent Survivors

 

Dance Saskatchewan and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner present Silent Survivors at The Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon from July 18 through August 22. Originally premiering in 2013, Silent Survivors is the story of the Indian residential school experience told through song, traditional dance and creative expression. ”We believe the time is now for the unarmed truth and unconditional love to have the final word, and that it is only together as a community that we can move towards healing … one dance step at a time,” writes Lorin Gardypie, artistic director of Thunder Spirit Consulting.

A new work by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB) – Going Home Star – Truth and Reconciliation – also addresses the residential school system and the burden of that experience. The story is written by award-winning novelist Joseph Boyden and brought to life through Mark Godden’s choreography and music by Christos Hatzis (read the two in conversation in the September/October 2014 issue). RWB tours Going Home Star this upcoming season.
