Outstanding tellers of Indigenous stories, the artists of Red Sky Performance are committed to sharing the strength, beauty and resilience of First Nations. Mission accomplished in the inspiring Miigis: Underwater Panther.
The body of extraordinary works created for Red Sky Performance by artistic director Sandra Laronde and renowned artistic collaborators delivers intense and transformative artistic experiences. The Miigis saga reveals the power of nature and Indigenous prophecies. In Anishinaabe (Ojibway) culture, the miigis shell is symbolic of an inspired journey of the Anishinaabe people from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes, from salt water to fresh. A spectacular fusion of Indigenous contemporary dance, live music, video projections and athleticism, Miigis: Underwater Panther explores the catalysts for movement, archetypes, mystery beings, and the cycle of life. Unstoppable energy.
