As beautiful as it is arresting, Santee Smith’s ground breaking piece Re-Quickening explores the intersection of indigenous and new dance performance. Created through a process unique to her culture, Re-Quickening is a spiritual resurgence — a piecing together of shards of knowledge that tip colonialism on its head. Provoking, conceptual and visceral, this work is a timely call for reawakening. Kaha:wi Dance Theatre is one of Canada’s leading contemporary dance companies, renowned for its artistry and creative excellence.
Live Art Dance is honoured to announce that this piece is being presented in collaboration with the Prismatic Arts Festival, one of Canada’s leaders in diversity and accessibility. (For more information about Prismatic’s incredible line-up, click here!)
“….a genuine spiritual experience that is also ravishing in its visual components.” The Globe and Mail, Paula Citron
