V’ni Dansi Preserves traditional Métis dance and creates innovative contemporary works: the company brings both these activities together for a special double bill for its anual Louis Riel Day Celebration. Eagle Spirit, a contemporary solo choreographed and performed by Artisitic Director Yvonne Chartrand, probes themes of death and rebirth, and the eagle’s connection to the spirit world. V’ni Dansi’s traditional dance troupe will perform the jigs, reels and square dances, to live music, that the Métis culture is famed for.
