  Backbone is a cutting-edge new dance and live music creation inspired by the 'spine' of continents. Featuring 8 dancers from Canada, New Zealand and China, Backbone combines contemporary Indigenous dance with athleticism to express its power, formation and spirit. The idea that there is a 'spine' to our continents is an Indigenous concept. It reveals our way of perceiving land as sentient, alive and intact. Red Sky explores the 'backbone' of continents and how these rocky mountainous spines have life, circuity, electricity and impulses - much like a human spine. Backbone shows how those mountains have emerged from two million years worth of restlessness. Raw, ferocious, and magnificent.
