Join us for SUPERNOVA: Performances That Heal, the second Indigenous Showcase created by Indigenous Artist in Residence Lindsay Delaronde. This collection of performances invites new pathways for healing the spirit through song, dance, and storytelling, both traditional and contemporary.

The all-Indigenous cast of creatives will explore their relationship to creation stories and mythology from the past, as well as the present re-newal, re-visioning and re-creation of indigenous worldviews.

From conception of ideas, to training, rehearsal and performance, SUPERNOVA is entirely rooted in holistic Indigenous worldviews.  It pushes the boundaries of European-based status quo and colonial expectations of effective performance creation by showcasing the powerful contributions of Indigenous peoples in Canada, not only in the realm of performance but also in all aspects of our communal life in this country.

Artistic direction by Lindsay Delaronde and Monique Salez of Raino Dance.

SUPERNOVA: Performances That Heal is a City of Victoria Initiative in partnership with The Belfry Theatre.
