Yaliyat cocahq: Dance Workshop

    15 May 2022

Quebecoise and Wolastoq (Maliseet) artist Ivanie Aubin-Malo presents a dance workshop drawn from her experiences in powwow circles and in connecting with other wolastoqiyik communities. Together with Aubin-Malo, participants will take part in a warm-up routine incorporating techniques from powwow dance, followed by various movement exercises inspired by Wolastoqey language and cultural elements. This workshop promotes the revitalisation of Wolastoqey culture and offers participants the opportunity to learn about the richness and vitality of Indigenous cultures while on the territory that gave birth to them.

The recommended age for this workshop is 8 years and older. If registration for the program is at capacity, please email programmingandlearning@torontobiennial.org to be added to the waitlist.

Yaliyat cocahq is co-presented by the Toronto Biennial of Art and Oakville Galleries on the occasion of their respective projects, TBA 2022 and the exhibition My mind is with the weather by Tanya Lukin Linklater.
