The performance that followed can be called nothing less than an embodiment of this idea and a ritual of the strength and power found within it. It presents an Indigenous vision and philosophy of mapping land and space that is visually arresting and emotionally impactful. With live percussion, virtuosic choreography, and a stunning display of physical strength, Backbone is impressive, dynamic, and often serene.
