PERFORMANCE: Bears Stars and Trees

25 Dockside Drive - Main Stage

Bears Stars and Trees is a result of a unique collaboration between choreographer Malgorzata Nowacka, with artistic advisor Arik Pipestem from the Tsuu t’ina Nation and Cree Elder and Chancellor of Algoma University, Shirley Horn.

The result is a story told through both ancient and western movement, concepts and conflicts set to a pulsating music score and gritty projected landscape. Within the story, traditional Seven Grandfather teaching are woven through projected image and hoop danced symbols.
