Waka/Ciimaan – is a new project and a co-production between Tawata Productions (Aotearoa, New Zealand) and Native Earth Performing Arts (Toronto, Canada).
The title of the project, Waka/Ciimaan, are the Maori and Anishinaabemowin words for “canoe”. We recognize that water – wai in Maori, nibi in Anishinaabemowin – is a driving force in both our creation stories and ultimately the connecting online casino link between all of humanity.
The first exploration of this new work will happen during the Weesageechak Begins to Dance 27 festival November 12 – 22 with a public presentation of Waka/Ciimaan as a work in progress on Thursday, November 20, 2014. You can find all the information about the festival all of the other events here.
