MOTHER: embodied earth performance is a series of ten short videos of Indigenous performances inspired, enacted and created on the land and waters of the lək̓ʷəŋən and W̱SÁNEĆ territories. Each performance expresses empowering acts of resurgence and healing to weave together embodied teachings from Mother Earth. MOTHER honours Indigenous presence on the land and echoes the impulse to act in reciprocity towards all living beings. Healing our sacred bodies on our sacred mother earth through ritual, song, and the dances of our ancestors have always been the way onward.
Audience Advisory: some nudity, mature content. Suitable for ages 13+
