MECDY MYSTIC ROOTZ
TRANSELUCIDE
Burning incense opens a pathway between the spirit and physical realms. In thirty minutes, before the portal closes, Mecdy’s soul, still suspended in the ether, must decide who his parents will be. Each time Mecdy has a question, the answer comes to him through dance. Whether alone or facing an opponent in a competition, on stage or in nature, he always feels himself falling into a trance. To the energizing rhythm of his breath, join him on his meditative solo and reap the therapeutic benefits of his medicine.


JEANETTE KOTOWICH (VANCOUVER)
Kisiskâciwan
A creative return to the fast-flowing landscape of Saskatchewan, the robust and undulating land of Jeanette’s great-grandmothers and great-great-grandfathers, Kisiskâciwan is a journey to one’s self. It speaks through dance to a Métis cultural narrative of identity and home. Through memories of her childhood summers embraced by the Kah-tep-was (Nêhiyaw for “river that calls”) valley, she evokes the lasting impression left by the inspiring vast prairie and the gently rolling hills. Kah-tep-was is a 2-kilometre wide, 180-metre deep valley, a sacred place that calls generations of peoples for gathering, hunting, and spiritual replenishment.
