TORONTO PREMIERE

In this sumptuously provocative new dance and live music creation, Red Sky Performance explores the ‘spine’ of the continents. Combining Indigenous dance with raw athleticism to express its power, formation and spirit, eight dancers bring to life the electricity and impulses of our rocky mountainous backbone.

IN RESIDENCE 17.18/18.19
Internationally renowned, Red Sky Performance is one of Canada's leading companies of contemporary Indigenous performance in dance, theatre and music.
