An exciting world premiere from choreographer Jeanette Kotowich, Kisiskâciwan is a creative return to the fast-flowing landscape of Saskatchewan, the robust and undulating land of her ancestors. Conceived and performed by Kotowich, who is of Nêhiyaw, Métis and mixed settler ancestry, this new solo is a richly textured journey to one’s self, and references protocol, ritual, and our relationship to the natural and spirit worlds.

“Through memories of my childhood summer, embraced by the Kah-tep-was (Nêhiyaw for river that calls) valley, the vast prairie and gently rolling landscape has echoed its lasting impression and whispered a language of inspiration. This is a sacred place that calls generations of peoples for gathering, hunting, and spiritual replenishment.” – Jeanette Kotowich

Presented as part of The Dance Centre’s Global Dance Connections series.
