“Long ago, there were beings of light and energy called Kisikookuk. These ‘star people’ roamed the realities looking for new experiences, new understandings, and new perspectives. The Cree people believe that one of the Kisikookuk, named Atchakos Iskwew, or Star Woman, came down from the Hole in the Sky (Pakone Kisik) into our reality. From her, all people found their way here to learn, experience, gain insight and perspective and teach and then [move] on.” – Wilfred Buck

Journey through the universe as two souls discover themselves through new found love and kinship. This unique exploration transcends the physical world as they discover all sides of their own energy in a space beyond time. Hole in the Sky blends traditionally rooted Indigenous hoop dancing with contemporary combat and mask work.

This performance is performed in ASL and English and is fully accessible.
