Blood Tides is an inter-generational and inter-cultural performance work led by Kaha:wi Dance Theatre‘s Santee Smith and an ensemble of international Indigenous women from Canada, New Zealand, and the United States.

Blood Tides is the second production in the triptych performance series: Re-Quickening, Blood Tides, and Skennen, all created through Indigenous process and from a Konkwehon:we (Indigenous woman’s) perspective and research. The piece highlights the retrieval of ancient women’s knowing, restoration of rites of passage, and opens a sacred space to power up feminine voice, body, and spirit.

This Student Matinee is suitable for students in grades 9-12. Teachers will receive a Study Guide consisting of contextual information and a variety of cross-curricular classroom activities. Tickets are $10.00 for students and FREE for teachers.

Performance is from 12:30pm-1:30pm and post-performance chat with the artists from 1:30pm-1:45pm.
