Through an intricate play of light and shadow, Red Sky Performance merges explosive contemporary dance with innovative physical storytelling. “AF” explores Anishinaabe fire prophecies which foretell of a pivotal moment where humanity will face the ultimate choice. Rather than reinterpreting an Orwellian revolution gone wrong, we seek inspiration from Anishinaabe mythologies, archetypes and futurism to imagine a new fire for the future.
