A solo call for connection, transformation and healing NeoIndigenA is a performance of the soul exploring our relationship to all living entities and elements. It is transcendent and primordial fiercely cycling through sacred portals between Skyworld, Earthworld and Underworld. Santee Smith’s solo journey encompasses past, present, future in one body and space, awakening ancient ways of knowing and spiritual renewal. NeoIndigenA searches for sacred pathways of human connection to self and universe.
To prepare for NeoIndigenA, Artistic Director Santee Smith received solo mentorship with Margie Gillis, Charles Koroneho, Zab Maboungou and Alejandro Ronceria. The premiere occurred at the Enwave Theatre, Harbourfront Centre as a part of the NextSteps dance series 2013/14.
