Medicine Bear Family Performance presented by Kaha:wi Dance Theatre
Special Family Price: All seats $5! [service charge & GST incl.]| Buy tickets
Rich in culture and inspired by two traditional Iroquois stories about healing, Medicine Bear celebrates Iroquois song, dance, storytelling, and imagery. How the Bear Clan became known as the ‘Keeper of the Medicines’ and The Young Hunter who discovered the Gift of Medicine are woven together in this playful new production for all ages.
Virtues of compassion, respect, caring, healing, and generosity infuse this uplifting family tale from one of Canada’s brightest lights in dance theatre; a beautiful performance not to be missed.
