Ancestralizing the Present


This day of performances, talks, and events explores the ways in which First Nations protocol informs collaborative works created in partnership by Indigenous and non-Indigenous dance artists.

‘Ancestralizing’ describes the ways in which Indigenous artists draw upon ancient ways of being, knowing, and relationships to territories, to create work that activates the present so that it becomes the future. As future ancestors, these artists create new works that become the ancient songs and dances of generations to come.
