Pendulum – February 23 + 24

 “This community-focused initiative honours Indigenous worldviews as they relate to reconciliation and community healing,” said Lindsay Delaronde. “Pendulum brings new life into the context of theatre and decolonizes the art form, which Indigenous peoples are so often left out of.”

Pendulum – An Indigenous Showcase will include the following acts:

  • Ohen:ton Kariwentehkhwa, an Iroquois giving of thanks,
  • Breath in the Land, a contemporary local territorial acknowledgement of welcome and holding of space,
  • ANSWER, an all-female drum group who has been singing and sharing traditional songs throughout the community in order to keep tradition alive,
  • Rage Flowers, a contemporary duet exploring decolonizing of the body through rage,
  • Ahousat, a Bear Song composed by Guy Louis Jr. and performed by members of the Nuuchanulth community, narrating the struggle and conflict of a man and bear before they unite as one.

Friday, February 23 at 7:30 pm
