In a world premiere production featuring a cast of Shumka Dancers and multidisciplinary Indigenous artists, the performance shares a story of the first Ukrainian newcomers to Canada, exploring the shared values and respected differences between these hopeful settlers and the First Nations people they encounter in a new land. Survival, for both Indigenous and Ukrainian immigrant people in Alberta, often meant silence: lost stories and connections between communities help them all survive tremendous loss and struggle. The performers use dance to begin to break that silence; to remember those who came before us, the traditions they instilled, and the truths they endured.
