A partnership between Vanguardia Dance Projects and Aanmitaagzi

“Conversations” is a dialogue of bodies extended in various latitudes of the Americas. Starting from the investigation of “body and territory” by the Colombian-Canadian choreographer Olga Barrios, this work seeks a conversation between women through the Americas, seeking a South-North echo.

Barrios' research/creation explores the traces of indigenous heritage that have been erased in her journey, as has happened with many people in various places in America and the planet. This work is based on the woman of many colours that she experiences in herself and with the many other voices in the world that seek connection with ideas of traces erased from history.

The artists who joined conversation #1 are Penny Couchie (North Bay), Nimikie Couchie (North Bay), Lilia León (Toronto-Mexico), Norma Araiza (Toronto- Mexico). Composer Edgardo Moreno (Hamilton- Chile) under the direction of choreographer and dancer Olga Barrios (Toronto-Colombia). For the next phase, the invited artist: Alejandra Higuera (Toronto- Colombia) Visual Artist.
