with Full Circle First Nations Performance
Commerce, greed, and disenfranchisement are key themes in these two paired dance works by Circadia Indigena – Indigenous Arts Collective.
Greed examines our exploitative stock market system and the crippling effects of corporate and personal greed, results of the false ego. This work juxtaposes traditional Indigenous harmony with the natural environment while consequences of greed, causes personal and biospheric destruction. Affecting the living balance of self, community and our planet.
REsolve embodies taking control of one’s own destiny, by challenging our present economic slavery and physiological bondage and poisoning. There are transcendent moments of realization and awakening where one must stand up for freedom, act to determine one’s identity and path.
These companion works consider First Nations world views, however, we are all affected by the challenges physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. The resulting tensions from this juxtaposition of radically opposed world views, is inscribed on the individual and the collective, to challenge themselves in presenting a stand point of view. As one may journey through the commodity exploitation of individual from birth to death. A roller coaster of ideas for the audience.

QAF takes place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our nations based on respect and consent.
