BACKBONE is a cutting-edge new dance show inspired by the ‘spine’ of the Americas, charting the vast and rocky terrain of our human landscape. Through contemporary Indigenous dance and raw athleticism, eight dancers bring to life the electricity and impulses of our rocky mountainous backbone.
The concept and direction of BACKBONE is by Red Sky's Executive and Artistic Director Sandra Laronde, with collaborative choreography by Jera Wolfe and Thomas Fonua. Backbone will be performed by dancers Ageer, Eddie Elliott, Lonii Garnons-Williams, Phillipe Larouche, Julie Pham, Joshua St. John, and Jera Wolfe. Video and ighting design of Backbone is by Andy Moro and Michel Charbonneau, with Costume design by Jeff Chief.
