Touring since 2003, we have delivered 1,736 performances across Canada and 178 international performances in 12 countries on four continents.

Migration

Migration is performed by dancers from Red Sky and Black Grace, and features explosive live music. Dancers come from the far reaches of multiple countries including Canada, New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa and Mexico.

Insignia

Red Sky's inSIGNia fuses contemporary and Indigenous dance with athleticism to reveal a practice as old as humanity itself and native to every corner of the world.

Raven

Raven is a fabulous creature of impulse and invention. In order to satisfy his overwhelming sense of curiosity, Raven hatches a brilliant scheme for stealing the stars, the moon and the sun, and ends up bringing light to the people of the world. This compelling dance theatre piece is for family members of all ages.

The Great Mountain

The Great Mountain is an eco-adventure story in the guise of an action-packed play that entertains and empowers the imaginations of children and families alike.

Shimmer

In collaboration with artists from Indigenous Australia (mainland and the Torres Strait Islands), Shimmer brings a unique dance creation featuring an all-male Indigenous cast with live drummers and singers, as well as a didgeridoo player and songman.

Caribou Song

Tells the story of two Cree children in Canada's north who follow the caribou by dogsled with their family. This adventure dance story for family audiences is a tale about the transformative nature of love and the power of the natural world.

Dancing Americas

Dancing Americas explores the relationships of the First Peoples of the Americas through the metaphor of the Monarch butterfly that lives in south central Canada and migrates annually to Mexico.

Underworlds

Underworlds follows the Anishnaabe (Ojibway) hero Cheeby-Aub-Oozoo whose mythic descent to the underworld bequeaths music and dream quests to the land of the living.
