Dancers of Damelahamid (Vancouver); Co-commissioned by The Cultch

NOV 20–24, 2019

Historic Theatre

Best Prices: Nov 21 at 1pm!

An innovative multimedia dance work about rebirth and transformation. Integrating narrative, movement, song, and projections, Mînowin connects coastal landscapes with contemporary perspectives of customary Indigenous dance forms.

The Dancers of Damelahamid draw from Indigenous foundational stories to explore and redefine contemporary reflections of Indigenous identity.

“A truly West Coast take on the thriving area of Indigenous contemporary dance.”—The Georgia Straight
