Backbone Europe Tour: Public Performances

 

Red Sky is touring Europe with the Dora Award nominated production Backbone!
We will be sharing our worldview of Indigenous mapping with the rest of the world with a 5-week Europe tour of the show running January 7-February 24, 2019.
Backbone will be showcased at world-class performing arts venues in Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Poland as part of the tour.  Backbone ferociously brings to life the electricity, circuitry, and impulses of a sentient land as it emerges from millions of years of restlessness. With powerful live music and highly physical solos, duets and ensembles, the performers interpret nature's spine and landscapes to embody Indigenous mapping and Western cartography.

 

Co-produced and original commission by the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
