Sky Dancers: Bridges

May 15 - 16, 2020

A’NÓ:WARA DANCE THEATRE

Choreographer(s): Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo

This new multidisciplinary dance theatre piece explores the impact of the Quebec bridge disaster of 1907, which killed 33 ironworkers from the Mohawk community of Kahnawake. When the steel bridge collapses while under construction, the aftermath echoes across generations and across North America. A visually stunning piece that bridges the past to the present, exploring tragedy, family and community resilience.

I always took an interest in this story – this disaster – because my great-grandfather was one of the men who died on the bridge that day.
