RPL Films - Ancestors & Elders
Film et vidéo
Free Admission | Wednesday September 28 -7:00 PM CST | Canada | 2019 | 60 min | STC | Ukrainian Shumka Dancers Stream this film for free any time, any day here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiOuCh3_X1M Ukrainian Shumka Dancers presents - Ancestors & Elders, a dance production exploring the power of tradition and truth. 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.
