Maggie & Me
2021 July 25
Christine Friday, an Anishinabbe kwe from Friday's Point on Lake Temagami, is a professional contemporary dance artist and choreographer.
Maggie & Me honours and continues the legacy of women as healers in our communities; traditional practice revealed in a contemporary world. This piece begins with the offering to be a jingle dress dancer evolving into the creation of a contemporary healing dance allowing gifts and ancestral experiences to guide the choreographer in the creation and manifestation. The journey travels through dimensional realms of existence - spirit, dream, and present - the healing and revitalization of the Anishinaabe culture. With a movement style that is at once free, lyrical, explosive, an expression of indigenous contemporary dance, she walks into her own power. (see Maggie & Me)
