Moving Roots: Reflections takes place on Indigenous land. Manitoba is the land of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiw (Cree), Anish-iniw (Oji- Cree), Dakota, and Dene Peoples, the homeland of the Métis Nation.

Moving Roots performance arts company is producing its first show with an eponymous name Moving Roots: Reflections. This multidisciplinary contemporary arts debut show combines contemporary dance, circus, film, and poetry while premiering six works by Anastasia Evsigneeva, Anna Protsiou, Robin Poitras, and Edward Poitras. MR: Reflections is a collaborative process of developing lights, projections, and music with guest artists that creates the magic to the event and makes it unforgettable. In the creation process artists were inspired by mythology, rituals and traditions of different cultures, ideas from psychology and philosophy, personal experiences, nature of the human psyche, emotions, feelings, and their manifestation in the body. The show features live music by Rayannah, and music by Chiyoko Szlavnics.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
