Rings Through Water
Daily 8pm Showtimes from Aug. 23rd to 25th
Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another?
This show uses ethereal choral and solo singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, powerful text and theatrical presentation to tell three short stories. Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.
Rings Through Water is an interdisciplinary creation between five artists, three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.
