The Top End of Australias Northern Territory is home to a wealth of Aboriginal art that reflects the spirit of the people and the intense connection they have with the land. From ancient dot paintings derived from drawings in the desert sand through to more contemporary bark paintings, each piece offers a glimpse into the rich history of the Aboriginal people and the Dreamtime stories of the worlds oldest living culture thought to be more than 50,000 years old.
Aboriginal artwork was traditionally used as a teaching tool to pass on knowledge regarding ownership, responsibilities, beliefs and practices. It revealed a range of ancestral stories that had been passed down through generations, explaining connections with the land, tribal customs and traditional law. Today Aboriginal art has firmly made its way onto the international indigenous art scene.
Referred as the Dreamtime, these stories are the gateway to understanding the rich history and beliefs of the Aboriginal people.

Dancing Americas explores the relationships of the First Peoples of the Americas through the metaphor of the Monarch butterfly that lives in south central Canada and migrates annually to Mexico.
The dance piece draws on the possibilities of exchange along pre-contact trade routes. The Monarch is an inspired metaphor for migration, generation, metamorphosis and beauty. Four performers from Canada and four performers from Mexico combine forces to create and shape this contemporary stage phenomenon.
Dancing Americas is set to original, live music by world famous composer Antonio Zepeda, celebrated for his revival of Mesoamerican and pre-Colombian indigenous music from Mexico.
*******www.redskyperformance****. This new outstanding dance creation brings together the Indigenous cultures of Canada, Mongolia and China. Tono is heavily grounded in the theme of horse culture, a creature universally regarded as the epitome of strength, grace and beauty, and spans the plains tradition in Asia and North America with a storyline about shamanism on both continents.
Inspired by Red Sky artistic director Sandra Laronde's travels to Asia, this three-country project was featured as part of the Closing Ceremonies of the cultural programming of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Tono has also been performed at the 2008 Summer Arts Festival at The Banff Centre, the 2008 Meet in Beijing Festival, the International Arts and Culture Festival in Inner Mongolia, and Toronto's 2009 Luminato Festival. Tono will continue to tour with performances at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, High Performance Rodeo, the Yukon Arts Centre and into Asia in 2010.
