Earth Song – a mixed program of contemporary Aboriginal dance
Raven Spirit Dance’s Earth Song is a mixed program of contemporary Aboriginal dance, featuring choreography by Starr Muranko and Michelle Olson. Two visionary choreographers bring their diverse voices to the act of connection. Moving from Spirit to form through currents of spatial tension, these are the songs of the land and body, deeply rooted and ever reaching. Starr Muranko’s Spine of the Mother and Michelle Olson’s Northern Journey traverse territories of impulse, memory, and landscape. Additionally, the program includes the solo, Frost Exploding Trees Moon, choreographed by Michelle Olson and Floyd Favel; this piece follows the breath, instinct & impulse of a woman on her northern trap line.
Earth Song premiered at The Dance Centre (Vancouver, BC) & Aki Theatre (Toronto, ON) – Nov 2015
This is the second of three performances happening at various locations in the lower mainland. Find the details at: www.newworks.ca/2018/01/
