DanceWorks presents Kaha:wi Dance Theatre
Blood Tides — DW229
Feb 14-16, 2019, 8pm
Fleck Dance Theatre, Harbourfront Centre Theatre

Artistic Director: Santee Smith
Performers: Santee Smith, Marina Acevedo, Jahra 'Rager' Wasasala, Julianne Blackbird.

Blood Tides activates sacred alignments from cosmos to womb. Imagery and energies span the wide range of what is woman: warrior, leader, mother, divine goddess, creator, thresholder of life and death and huntress, illuminated by elemental and ancestral forces. Blood Tides acknowledges the magnificence of women in all of her phases – its inter-generational performance.

“Blood Tides opens up space to question, retrieve pre-colonial Indigenous women’s knowledges, and weave her narratives and experiences. The embodiment of her divinity and humanity united, owning and navigating space, Blood Tides activates women’s ceremony and cycles remembering Indigenous matrifocal ways of being.” Santee Smith (Artistic Director/Producer, Six Nations)

Blood Tides places international Indigenous women’s collaboration at the forefront: Turtle Island, Mexico, Aotearoa (New Zealand), and Fiji. It’s a visual and sonic feasting, moving from dream and unbounded transformational states, conjuring the powers of Lightning Woman and female deities such Grandmother Moon, Claywoman and the revival of rites of passages.

“Women are the cradle of the generations, the temple of humanity, the first territory. When we heal and empower ourselves we liberate the people” Ngāhuia Murphy, 2018 (Cultural Advisor, Aotearoa).
