Whirling Worlds: Story Dance
Jessica McMann (Calgary)

hoop dance shares stories and the viewers enter into alternate worlds within their own imagination. This contemporary hoop dance was premiered at the Shadbolt for the Arts on National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a celebration of the strength and persistence of Indigenous women.

The Wind That Takes Us (An excerpt from Gidaashi)
Olivia C. Davies (Vancouver)

Creating new ceremonies based on the traces mother nature makes, a woman is carried by the wind and grounded by the earth beneath her feet. An excerpt from the full-length work, Gidaashi, by Olivia C. Davies and Melissa Frost.

This new work in development from O.Dela Arts asks audiences to witness Indigenous women’s stories of displacement as an effect of colonization.

Created by Olivia C. Davies (Anishinaabe) and Melissa Frost (Vuntut Gwichin), this interdisciplinary work combines spoken word, soundscape, and dance to speak about the reality of being stripped of cultural identity and the reassertion of language, protocol and ceremony.

Ayla Modeste (Edmonton)

Ayla fuses the electricity of her mysterious body and her rebellious nature.
She uses contemporary, burlesque and self taught expression to dive deep into her sensuality. Through her dancing, she journey's through rivers of molten lava and unforeseen dreams.
