Great Lakes is a one-of-kind site-specific dance and live music production that is performed knee-deep in water on the shore of Lake Ontario. It brings together contemporary Indigenous dance, original music, and the connection to five freshwater lakes. This new work explores our interconnectedness to the Great Lakes, water as life-sustaining, and as a creative force. We as Anishinaabe believe that water is alive. Water is our earth's lifeblood, and that all bodies of water are her veins. Without water, we simply would cease to exist. Water is life.
