Shadow puppetry & paper-cut-out experimental short film exploring multifaceted relationships - with “nature”, queer/2s brilliance, friendship & chosen fam, family, community goals and everything else that speaks to heart and mind. Dreaming futures of care/interdependence/mutual respect/reciprocity. Lullaby soundscape. Drawing With Knives Shadows is a non-static collaboration based in Tkaronto (Toronto).
This work was created in Tkaronto (Toronto) in the Great Lakes basin, on occupied traditional lands of Haudenausonee and Anishnaabe nations, Wendat & Petun. This city is home to many Indigenous peoples, including First Nations, Inuit, and Métis folks. Nothing is unrelated to this, and nothing is enough but returning land and power.
Commissioned by Nightwood Theatre.
