Intersections de la culture

Les perceptions et les interprétations de la culture sont aussi diverses et complexes que peuvent l'être les personnes et les paysages. Créer et ouvrir des espaces pour les voix autochtones, voilà qui remet en question les filtres dont nous nous servons pour interpréter la culture et qui permet à diverses intersections culturelles de se réaliser.

Tout au long de la conférence, CAPACOA crée cet espace commun où se concrétise l'intersection des expressions artistiques de toute une diversité de nations et de voix autochtones.

ReQuickening, Kaha:wi Dance Theatre

Kaha:wi Dance Theatre

Provoking, conceptual and visceral Re-Quickening is a timely call for reawakening the intact feminine. Through bold imagery, sound and embodied Indigenous narratives, it is a re-affirmation of life and sovereignty of female voice and body. Re-storying into balance Re-Quickening is a women’s renewal ceremony. Conceived through an Indigenous creation process, it’s a spiritual resurgence, a piecing together of shards of knowledge, tipping colonialism on its head. The performance touches and moves forward through themes of dislocation from land, body and voice, the history of violence against Indigenous women since contact, residential schools, assimilative process of the Indian Act towards reclaiming women’s medicine, power and connection to land and creative force.
