Pendulum: An Indigenous Showcase at Belfry Theatre

City of Victoria Indigenous Artist in Residence Lindsay Delaronde in partnership with the Belfry Theatre invites you to attend Pendulum: An Indigenous Showcase, traditional and contemporary multidisciplinary performances by Indigenous artists and groups from across Canada in February.

Pendulum – An Indigenous Showcase will include the following performances:

  • Ohen:ton Kariwentehkhwa, an Iroquois giving of thanks
  • Breath in the Land, a contemporary local territorial acknowledgement of welcome and holding of space
  • ANSWER, an all-female drum group who has been singing and sharing traditional songs throughout the community in order to keep tradition alive
  • Rage Flowers, a contemporary duet exploring decolonizing of the body through rage
  • Ahousat, a Bear Song composed by Guy Louis Jr. and performed by members of the Nuuchanulth community, narrating the struggle and conflict of a man and bear before they unite as one

Pendulum represents not only the oscillation between life and death, love and sorrow, joy and pain, but also the pendulum that swings between traditional and contemporary forms of performance. The range of performance and music styles is designed to create a sensory, transformative experience for the audience – triggering body memory and interconnectivity.
