Let’s Groove Together!

Living With is a multi-layered performance that explores the interconnections between people and our relationship to the earth. Through the thoughtful storytelling, harmonizing, dancing and drumming of the Her Tribal Roots’ artists, we can reimagine how we interact with one another and with nature. 

Living With is a true mosaic where different dance styles, music, poetry and cultures come together to create a beautiful expression of how we can all live with one another. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to feel the rhythm, connection and joy that is all around us. Kids will be inspired in more ways than one. Commissioned by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

Show Credits 

Her Tribal Roots would like to acknowledge that we are residents of Turtle Island and our piece is being created on xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) lands.

While the identification of each artist is as follows, we would also like to acknowledge that these labels are meant to honour our history and heritage but can also be clouded by colonialism. We are still figuring out how to properly acknowledge our ancestry in a way that can be more nuanced and holistic:

Alyssa Amarshi – Ismaili Heritage from Tanzania and India
Tawahum Bige – Two Spirit and nonbinary Lutselk’e Dene and Plains Cree
Ariane Custodio- Tagalog diaspora
Chelsea Franz- South East Asian diaspora
Marisa Gold – Black / mixed race
Natasha Gayle – Black/ POC
Jean David Muco – Burundi Heritage
Kt Karjala – nonbinary Laplands and Celtic descent
Orin T McRey – Norwegian, English, Irish, and Scottish
