Project Description

Red Sky Performance

Mistatim – In-Person Performance

An unforgettable story of reconciliation, Mistatim is about the taming of a wild horse and the truest of friendships. Under a prairie sky, a simple wooden fence is all that separates Calvin on his ranch and Speck on her reservation. In many ways they are worlds apart, that is, until a wild horse named Mistatim turns their worlds upside down.

Meet the Artists: Dance, Voice, Movement – In-Person Workshop

Led by the cast of Mistatim, participants get the opportunity to work up close and personal with professional performers in learning basic voice and body warm-ups, confidence building, theatre games, and movement, while being introduced to elements of First Nations culture. The participants are encouraged to learn to “take the stage and introduce themselves.”

About Red Sky Performance

Red Sky Performance is a leading company of contemporary Indigenous performance in Canada and worldwide. Led by Artistic Director Sandra Laronde of the Teme-Augama-Anishinaabe (People of the Deep Water), Red Sky’s mission is to create inspiring experiences of contemporary Indigenous arts and culture that transform society.

“This show is exactly what the teachers at this school needed to see in order to realize that when we implement an Indigenous element in every class next year, they don’t need to be afraid and don’t need to withhold. Children can handle the truth (of the residential school system) if we are willing to tell them.”
