Rings Through Water

August 23, 2019 to August 25, 2019


Rings Through Water is an interdisciplinary creation between three artists, two Indigenous and one Settler. Through choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, powerful text and theatrical presentation they will tell three short stories. These short stories will speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered Indigenous women who have met their end in it.
