Red Sky Performance
Red Sky Performance is a leading company of contemporary Indigenous performance in Canada and worldwide.
Their mission is to create inspiring experiences of contemporary Indigenous arts and culture that transform society. They drive their passion forward and elevate Indigenous arts and culture in ways that celebrate, uplift, and respect Indigenous cultures.
Now in their 21st year of performance (dance, theatre, music and media), Red Sky’s work highlights the originality and power of contemporary performance, enabling new creations to expand the breadth and scope of Indigenous-made work in Canada.
The vision of Red Sky Performance derives from its creator Sandra Laronde (Misko Kizhigoo Migizii Kwe) which means “Red Sky Eagle Woman” in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibway) language from the Teme-Augama Anishinaabe (People of the Deep Water). Her vision is dedicated to expanding and elevating the ecology of contemporary performance informed by Indigenous worldview and culture.
Red Sky Performance is the recipient of 16 Dora Mavor Moore awards and nominations, two Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, three International Youth Drama Awards from Shenzhen, China, and the Smithsonian Expressive Award, among other recognitions.
More than Dance, we are a Movement.
