Supernova, the second Indigenous Showcase created by Indigenous Artist in Residence Lindsay Delaronde, is a collection of performances that invite new pathways for healing the spirit. Using song, dance and storytelling, both traditional and contemporary, Supernova will examine the destructive and creative aspects inherent in both the celestial and human planes of existence to create a mythical portrayal of our intergenerational ways of being. The all indigenous cast of creatives will explore their relationship to creation stories and mythology from the past, as well as the present re-newal, re-visioning & re-creation of indigenous worldview.
From conception of ideas, to training and rehearsal, to performance, Supernova is entirely rooted in holistic Indigenous worldviews. It pushes the boundaries of European-based status quo and colonial expectations of effective performance creation by showcasing the powerful contributions of Indigenous peoples in Canada, not only in the realm of performance but also in all aspects of our communal life in this country.
