The Cultch presents Mînowin

Historic Theatre, 1895 Venables St20 Nov '19 to 24 Nov '19 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM

    The Cultch is thrilled to present Dancers of Damelahamid’s Mînowin, November 20-24, 2019, at The Cultch’s Historic Theatre.

    Mînowin is a new multimedia dance work that integrates narrative, movement, song, performance, and multimedia design, connecting to landscapes from contemporary perspectives of customary Indigenous dance forms. “Mînowin describes how we clarify direction,” says choreographer Margaret Grenier. “It's about recovering and re-interpreting teachings that define and redefine who we are as Indigenous people; teachings that are accessed through story, dance, and song.”

    Dancers of Damelahamid arose in the 1960s as a vital act, to ensure that the songs, dances, and stories, which had been previously forbidden by Canadian law, were not lost. “I treasure dance as the most significant inheritance I have from my ancestors,” says Grenier. “And it will be a life journey to strive to develop the art form to its potential.” Since then Dancers of Damelahamid have developed into a professional dance group known for their integration of traditional dance forms with innovative technology. Aiming to be transformative, Mînowin revolutionizes how Dancers of Damelahamid 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.
