Ancestralizing the Present

This day of performances, talks, and events explores the ways in which First Nations protocol informs collaborative works created in partnership by Indigenous and non-Indigenous dance artists.

Ancestralizing describes the ways in which Indigenous artists draw upon ancient ways of being, knowing, and relationships to territories, to create work that activates the present so that it becomes the future. As future ancestors, these artists create new works that become the ancient songs and dances of generations to come.

Trees are Portals

A very special collaboration bringing together Aeriosa aerial dancers and Spakwus Slulem Sea Going Canoe Family members in Stanley Park. The oldest trees in the park were witnesses to centuries of celebration and ceremony in the ancient Coast Salish village of X̱wáýx̱way. They are connectors, living portals who will hold the memories of our songs and dances when we too are gone.
