Red Sky Performance: Trace





“Magnificent in the scope of its imagination, and mysterious in its beauty”   The Globe and Mail 

Go back. We are traceable to the very beginnings of the universe, our ancestral origins stretching across the Milky Way to the atoms burning inside of us in the ‘here and now’ on earth. Trace is a highly kinetic contemporary dance work inspired by Indigenous (Anishinaabe) sky and star stories, offering a glimpse into our origin as well as our future evolution.

Trace is the newest creation from Red Sky Performance, an award winning and leading company of contemporary indigenous dance, theatre, music, and media in Canada and worldwide.

Powerful imagery, storytelling and music is the hallmark of each Red Sky presentation. Sandra Laronde, Executive and Artistic Director has been described as ‘a force of nature to be reckoned with” by Dance International. Her vision comes through in each exceptional new work and programming. It elevates the artistic ecology of contemporary Indigenous artistry and contributes to building vibrant Indigenous communities across Canada and worldwide.
