Nobody is certain if the world will be back on track Summer 2021. This includes upcoming Canada Day celebrations.
In Victoria, BC, not a lot of festivals are confirmed to take place and for those Fringe theatre enthusiasts, no official word is announced. It’s certainly safe to say online (virtual) style events will be offered where available, and for Intrepid Theatre’s end of summer tradition is unconfirmed at time of writing. However, it’s not to say they aren’t hosting other events.
This free online show will be available June 20 – 26 and it’ll spotlight social justice through the performing arts. Red on Red is looking like it’ll be available to view for anyone to see world-wide.
From the Press Release:
What happens when four Indigenous women come together in a dance studio? Exploring social justice through arts practice, a collective of Indigenous artists co-created a shared vision healing violence through dance, performance and storytelling. Red on Red combines movement and text, and embodies the in-between space of life and death and advocates for the ones gone and lost.
Visible Bodies Collective, founded by Lindsay Delaronde (Kanienkehaka) and co-founders Cheryl Henhawke (Kanienkehaha, Seneca), Elowynn Rose (Metis), Nicole Mandryk (Annishaabe, Ukranian), is a newly formed Indigenous, inter-generational dancetheatre group who come from many nations, and places across Turtle Island. They have previously performed Red on Red as part of Dance Victoria’s Rough Cuts Series, and are in residence at Dance Victoria.
Red on Red is closed captioned, and will be available to view on demand (anytime, on any device) between June 20 and 26. This show will be available for free, and we are encouraging donations in lieu of tickets to the Support Network for Indigenous Women and Women of Colour (SNIWWOC).
