From the forests and plains to the cities and streets, from sky world to the womb, along rivers, between tipis and jail cells, Dwellings is an exploration of Indigenous homes.
She:kon, Aneen! Dwellings is a performative, immersive response to the complex Indigenous-Canadian relationship that addresses the history, realities and dreams of the Indigenous house and home, and its effect on the land and on our bodies. Over centuries there has been a massive displacement of our Peoples from their homes and homelands. This performance acknowledges this history and tries to bring forth the possibilities of home and land. We acknowledge the Indigenous Nations in whose territory we are performing: the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, the Huron. We acknowledge as well the artists and culture workers of this territory. Thank you for allowing us to be here.
