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.
