Trent University to Host Indigenous Dance Performances
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"Evening in Paris" and "Iskwew" to be Performed March 1-4
Monday, February 27, 2006, Peterborough
Raven Spirit Dance, in partnership with Indigenous Performance Initiatives and in association with the Native Studies Department at Trent University and Peterborough New Dance, is proud to present two great works, Evening in Paris and Iskwew, for four nights beginning March 1 at 8:00 p.m. in Nozhem, the First Peoples Performance Space in Gzowski College at Trent University.
Both Evening in Paris and Iskwew explore the passages and journeys of Indigenous women in the past, present and future.
Evening in Paris is a breathtaking new work created by Muriel Miguel, founding member and Artistic Director of Spiderwoman Theatre, and Michelle Olson, Raven Spirit Dance's Artistic Director. Inspired by the remarkable life of Molly Spotted Elk, this dance/theatre piece uncovers and honours the complexity of Aboriginal women's experiences.
