Fierce and visceral, Windigo resonates in us like a cry, echoing a long history of human violation of the land and culture. A Nordic epic with a post-apocalyptic stroll, Windigo exorcises the demons and the waves of violence perpetrated against the Amerindian people.
Choreographer, scenic design and costumes: Lara Kramer
Collaborators and Performers: Jassem Hindi & Peter James
Windigo is a co-commission from the Candance Creation Fund, Festival Trans-Ameriques, National Arts Centre, Usine C, Centre de Creation O Vertigo and the Dancing on the Edge Festival
