January 22 – January 29
Miigis: Underwater Panther draws its inspiration from a prophecy in which the Anishinaabe must move westward or perish. It is about the great migration of the Anishinaabe from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes, moving from salt to freshwater.
Miigis aims to explore this journey, the mystery beings, the rise of matriarchy and the ancestral pull towards the next seven generations.
The 60-minute work will be performed to original live music and combine contemporary Indigenous dance, theatre and a fusion of athleticism, music and film.
