KĀHKĀKIW is a contemporary performance with characters drawn from Cree stories. The Raven (kāhkākiw) avoids the mantle of colonial epistemological frameworks with his deft, evasive dance. Materials for the Bunraku-inspired puppets include soil and sawdust from the streets of Montreeal, sand from local parks, wood from dead trees, fabric from the artists’ old clothing and homemade glues.
Techniques: Video, Dance and Bunkaru-Inspired Puppets
