Ancestral memories in dancing bodies

The FJPP and Ondinnok are thrilled to begin their exploration of ancestral memories in dancing bodies with eight inspiring artists: Claudia Chan Tak, Lucy Fandel, Charo Foo Tai Wei, Kyana Lyne, Heather Mah, Victoria May, Marine Morales-Casaroli and Marie Mougeolle.

As Catherine Joncas writes, “At Ondinnok, ancestral memories are a sacred territory that we visit with great respect and from where we receive messages that guide our creations and are fundamental to maintaining our identities.” The experimentation with the artists will focus on ties to territory, in a decolonizing approach.

Our sincere thanks to the many artists who expressed their desire to participate in this adventure. Unfortunately, we could only accept a limited number.
