Directed by Daniel Banks
Once, I made myself wings to fly
I changed my pattern in the wind
and in the sky
Blasted off into the future...
That’s when I started to shapeshift.
Zhooniyas has fallen from their home in the stars onto Earth, shrouded by light pollution. Interdisciplinary artist Ty Defoe (Oneida/Anishinaabe Nations) and the All My Relations Collective merge immersive performance with interactive multimedia to explore the intersections of science and sacred knowledge. Engaging Anishinaabe star maps, astrophysics, and personal narrative, GIZHIBAA GIIZHIG | Revolving Sky creates a lens to view indigiqueerness and the current climate crisis.
Performed in English and Anishinaabemowin.
Prior to the performance, the company will smudge with sage.
