Shaktiflow | The Lioness

March 4, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tickets by donation at the door 

 

Dance, Music & Spoken Word

Presented by Shaktiflow Studios, who are dedicated to empowerment through movement—stories told through dance. Each gesture has a meaning and with them we facilitate ideas of unity, equality, and change. 

The Lioness tells the story of the fire that resides within the feminine being. It is a poetic exploration of the ferocity of a woman. Guided by Katrina (Kena León’s) music and Nisha’s words, the dancer’s movements originate from deep within the core, extend into arms, legs, fingers, and face as they unravel from the limitations of their expected roles and mannerisms, revealing the rawness of their power. Featuring Misbah Qureshi, Katrina Campos, Nisha Patel, Amanda Alvorada, Cecilia Ferreyra, Teneil Whiskeyjack, Shrina Patel, and Shaktiflow dancers.

*Be sure to check out Shaktiflow’s Garba Dance & Workshop on Saturday, February 29.

SkirtsAfire respectfully acknowledges that we are telling stories on the traditional and ancestral homeland of diverse Indigenous peoples including Nehiyawak (Cree), Metis, Inuit, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux, who have lived and travelled through this place thousands of years before us and signed treaty to share the land we live, thrive and gather on. We are all treaty people and as settlers to Treaty 6 Territory, which is also home to Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, we are striving to better listen, understand and learn from the Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing. We respect and celebrate the languages, history and culture of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit whose presence continues to enrich this vibrant community here in ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, Amiskwacîwâskahikan, also known as Edmonton, and at SkirtsAfire.
