TRANSFORMATIONS: Pandemic Mom

By Kate Kamo McHugh / MT Space

“Pandemic Mom was made with my daughter Isabel in November 2020. Like many other parents during this time, I found myself in a daily routine that seemed to be on repeat and with very few digressions. Although the pandemic has been hard in many respects, it has also given me and Isabel the opportunity to really bond. I created this video to show how the mundane or normal can also be full of joy.” - Kate Kamo McHugh

With gratitude and appreciation, MT Space acknowledges that we live, learn, and benefit within the boundaries of the Haldimand Tract, which includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. This is the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral Confederacy), Anishinaabeg (Ojibway, Mississauga, Chippewa, and Algonquin), and Haudenosaunee Confederacy (Six Nations including the Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Seneca, Oneida, and Tuscarora Nations). We honour that these Nations of people have been living on, working on, and caring for this place from time immemorial and continue to do so today.

Commissioned by MT Space. Dancer and choreographer: Kate Kamo McHugh. Dance Partner: Isabel. Cinematography: Colin Boyd Shafer. Music: Once Again by Benjamin Tissot at bensound.com .
