ST. CATHARINES — Santee Smith’s The Mush Hole will be headlining as the featured dance performance on September 8 at the Celebration of Nations this coming weekend at the First Ontario Performing Arts Centre in the Cairns Recital Hall.
This will be the first time the performance will be performed in front of an audience.
The performance is built upon the acknowledgement of Mohawk Institute residential school survivors and utilizes their testimonials and writings to perform a piece that brings their lives and spirits to life.
The haunting portrayal is geared towards telling the stories of two generations of survivors and the intergenerational impacts that attending the school held.
Under the guise of Truth, Acknowledgement and Resilience, the piece will be performed from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m., this coming Saturday. The location is Cairns Recital Hall, 250 St. Paul Street, St. Catherines. For more informations visit the CON site online.
