Pendulum: An Indigenous Showcase

Date posted: January 10, 2018

Pendulum: An Indigenous Showcase is a multidisciplinary showcase that will present both traditional and contemporary Indigenous performances from across Canada.

“This community-focused initiative honours Indigenous worldviews as they relate to reconciliation and community healing,” said Lindsay Delaronde. “Pendulum brings new life into the context of theatre and decolonizes the art form, which Indigenous peoples are so often left out of.”

Pendulum will include the several acts including:
◦Ohen:ton Kariwentehkhwa, an Iroquois giving of thanks
◦Breath in the Land, a contemporary local territorial acknowledgement of welcome and holding of space
◦ANSWER, an all-female drum group who has been singing and sharing traditional songs throughout the community in order to keep tradition alive
◦Rage Flowers, a contemporary duet exploring decolonizing of the body through rage
◦Ahousaht, a Bear Song composed by Guy Louie Jr. and performed by members of the Nuu-chah-nulth community, narrating the struggle and conflict of a man and bear before they unite as one

Show times:
Friday, February 23 at 7:30 pm
Saturday, February 24 at 1:30 pm
Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 pm

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at the Belfry Box Office – 250-385-6815 or online.
