THIS & the last caribou is a series of three works; each of them explores our place in relation to history and nature. THIS is a meditation on loss and recovery. It portrays a woman drifting alone on a carpet of ice, separated from her bundle of fur… &depicts a dream sequence featuring a barebacked character, a rock, a red skirt, and waves enveloping a candy-coloured clown… the last caribou is an ode to love and loss in our tragic times–a duo of song and echo, pairing a caribou dancer and their shadow… From the acclaimed Regina-based company, New Dance Horizons, THIS & the last caribou demonstrates the integral role they play in strengthening the Saskatchewan dance community.
