Red on Red
Hosted by Intrepid Theatre Company
What happens when four Indigenous women come together in a dance studio? Exploring social justice through arts practice, a collective of Indigenous artists co-created a shared vision healing violence through dance, performance and storytelling. Red on Red combines movement and text, and embodies the in-between space of life and death and advocates for the ones gone and lost.
Visible Bodies Collective, founded by Lindsay Delaronde (Kanienkehaka) and co-founders Cheryl Henhawke (Kanienkehaha, Seneca), Elowynn Rose (Metis), Nicole Mandryk (Annishaabe, Ukranian), is a newly formed Indigenous, inter-generational dancetheatre group who come from many nations, and places across Turtle Island. They have previously performed Red on Red as part of Dance Victoria's Rough Cuts Series, and are in residence at Dance Victoria.
