The duet, Light Breaking Through BROKEN, is a creative collaboration between Margaret and Karen, two contemporary dance artists who identify and draw upon radically different cultural traditions, Western European culture and First Nations culture and protocols.
Light Breaking Through BROKEN seeks to honour the past, while locating itself in creative present; to explore intersecting narratives in time and space: broken historical narratives and contemporary connections of hope.
A full length version of Light Breaking Through BROKEN (working title) will premier at the 2017 Vancouver International Dance Festival.
