SOD#4 Prairie Currents C

ELOISE | Jeanette Kotowich
Eloise is a character-derived dance performance choreographed, written and performed by Jeanette Kotowich, which brings insight to the practice of honouring traditional territory. Eloise invites the audience to witness and participate in protocol with sincerity, hilarity, and gratitude. Through paralleling the irreverent against reverence, the performance experience is a provocation, asking the question "How do we give thanks?". Eloise is honouring, the inner terrain of the body, the ties to land and experience that we carry with us from where we have come, and the physical land on which we currently stand.
We are all of our relations.

TRAILS | Misty Wensel
At the head of a trail, this beaten down path where many have walked before.
The lens shrinks and the repetition of steps becomes a song.
The lens broadens and the vast prairie soundscape unfolds.
The cadence of feet stepping, visions of a congested dance floor.
Tracks gathering at a meeting point, bodies brought together by shifting winds.
Snapping sparks, a call to return home.
These are just the songs that follow the seeker into the wild.

WHATEVER THEY SING | Connie Moker Wernikowski |
Katrina Currie, Michelle Korpan, Carleigh Macdonald, Natasha Molnar-Fluter

may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
ee cummings

A contemporary dance film, choreographed by Connie Moker Wernikowski with direction, cinematography and editing by Larry J. Bauman.
