A re-matriation to the house of humanity, the womb, the power of the feminine voice and body, Blood Tides opens a sacred space through inter-generational, inter-cultural, and interdisciplinary performance. Led by Santee Smith and an ensemble of Indigenous women, the piece highlights the retrieval of ancient women’s knowing and the restoration of rites of passage, song and dance of earthworld, underworld and cosmos. The musical score by Cris Derksen features Pura Fe, Leela Gilday, Ngahuia Sharney Murphy (NZ) and others, creating an emotive landscape where Lightning Woman, Mother of Mothers, and Clay Woman come to tell their story and gather strength. 

 

Blood Tides is a the second production in the triptych performance series: Re-Quickening, Blood Tides and Skennen, all created through Indigenous process and from a Konkwehon:we (Indigenous woman’s) perspective and research.
