ReQuickening, Kaha:wi Dance Theatre

Provoking, conceptual and visceral Re-Quickening is a timely call for reawakening the intact feminine. Through bold imagery, sound and embodied Indigenous narratives, it is a re-affirmation of life and sovereignty of female voice and body. Re-storying into balance Re-Quickening is a women’s renewal ceremony. Conceived through an Indigenous creation process, it’s a spiritual resurgence, a piecing together of shards of knowledge, tipping colonialism on its head. The performance touches and moves forward through themes of dislocation from land, body and voice, the history of violence against Indigenous women since contact, residential schools, assimilative process of the Indian Act towards reclaiming women’s medicine, power and connection to land and creative force.

La comédienne et mime Francine Alepin agit à titre de conseillère au mouvement.
