“Water is Life…water is sacred
Women give Life…women are sacred
Blood waters
With each moon cycle we renew our umbilical connections in blood tides, in ocean tides
In connection with our grandmothers.”

Re-Quickening World Premiere TEASER ALERT!

March 22, 2016 | Category: Blog, Feature

Premiering as part of Harbourfront Centre’s 2015/16 Next Steps dance series, Re-Quickening takes the prevailing discourse surrounding international Indigenous women’s issues and incites a tough topical dialogue through performance, music and art, fuelled by re-constructing feminine power.

Does reconciliation mean the same thing to everyone, including those living on Turtle Island?
Re-Quickening goes there, while facilitating an artistic re-awakening of her-story.
