Festival of New Dance – Mînowin – Dancers of Damelahamid

October 8, 2019

Tuesday, October 8th

Mînowin illuminates the process of finding direction; it is an exploration of organic moments when we connect with one another that breathe new life into our artistic practices, and a critical experiment with performance space.

Through integrating narrative, movement, song, performance, and new multimedia design, Mînowin connects landscapes and Coastal form line with contemporary perspectives of customary Indigenous dance forms. The Dancers of Damelahamid aim to achieve this by drawing from our origin stories and exploring ways to translate this through a contemporary lens.

Aiming to be transformative, Mînowin revolutionizes how we have learned to work within and claim space through balancing the performance space by adding contemporary reflections of Indigenous identity, immersing audience in a narrative that illustrates moments of connection, understanding, and renewal.
