WORLD PREMIERETo know where you're going, you need to have an origin. From our Berkeley Street Company-in-Residence Red Sky Performance (Backbone), Trace is a sumptuous new dance and music creation that explores Indigenous connections to ancestral beginnings. Inspired by Anishinaabe cosmology — our star and sky stories — Trace maps our history and our future evolution.
