Tono, according to [Sandra] Laronde, emerged from first-hand experience of Mongolian culture during her travels in Asia. Laronde’s perception of links between that culture and the experience and beliefs of Canada’s indigenous peoples, particularly where horses and shamanism are concerned, was the foundation upon which Tono was built.” By Micheal Crabb, The Dance Current: Online.The stage is set at Calgary’s High Performance Rodeo for Red Sky Performance’s Tono, running tonight through to January 30th.
