We are traceable to the very beginning of the universe. Our ancestral origins stretch across the Milky Way, from the stars to the atoms burning brightly inside of us here on Earth. Through highly kinetic contemporary dance, TRACE maps Anishinaabe sky and star stories into being on the stage, offering us a rare glimpse into our origin as well as our future evolution. TRACE promises explosive contemporary Indigenous performance.
Red Sky Performance is a leading company of contemporary Indigenous performance led by Sandra Laronde of the Teme-Augama Anishinaabe. They have performed worldwide but maintain their grassroots level by performing regularly for urban, rural and reserve communities across Turtle Island. TRACE is the work of Métis choreographer Jera Wolfe. The seven dancers who perform the piece are accompanied by live musicians performing a rich original score by Eliot Britton.
