We are traceable to the very beginnings of the universe, our ancestral origins stretching across the Milky Way to the atoms burning inside of us in the ‘here and now’ on earth. Trace is a highly kinetic contemporary dance work inspired by Indigenous (Anishinaabe) sky and star stories, offering a glimpse into our origin as well as our future evolution.

Winner of two Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

Original commission and in association with Canadian Stage.

World premiere at Canadian Stage in November 2018. US premiere at Jacob’s Pillow in August 2019.

“Fiercely athletic, tightly executed, and deeply moving, Trace is an otherworldly experience that brought Vancouver audiences to their feet on opening night.”
