A series of site-specific vignettes performed in the prairie landscape, Trespassers Waltz evokes tensions of isolation and trespass prevalent to this moment in time.
Through place-making action and solitary and collective movement on the land, the artists tell a tale of what it is to be lost in one’s own home - a home where, especially in recent years, the nuances of settler/Indigenous relationship are confronted at every turn. As audiences experience humorous, poignant, and tender conciliations with land, acts of leading and following will become reciprocal ways to reckon with our own trespasses.
Trespassers Waltz was performed for a live audience on Sunday, September 20, 2020 in Treaty 4 (Regina), SK.
