Dancing Earth's performance, Walking at the Edge of Water, is an intertribal contemporary dance expression of Indigenous water perspectives. Every creative aspect of this eco-production reflects an indigenous cultural and environmental worldview, with collaborators in movement, musical composition, language, video imagery, costume and visual art.
This work is motivated by the urgings of Native grandmothers and invokes powerfully relevant water themes of creation, destruction and renewal . Walking at the Edge of Water, parallels ancestral healing rituals in a dance of inter-disciplinary Native expressions that is both primal and futuristic.
We are passionately committed to Indigenous contemporary dance as primal yet articulate movement - blood memory in motion - that speaks to all beings. We believe in dance as an expression that can illuminate issues of cultural, historical, philosophical, mythic, and spiritual relevance.
