About This Event

Performed just prior to the workshop reading of Alley Theatre's Inheritance: A pick-the-path performance.

Eloise is a character-derived dance performance choreographed, written and performed by Jeanette Kotowich, which brings insight to the practice of honouring traditional territory. Through paralleling reverence and glamour, the performance experience is a provocation, asking the question ‘How do we give thanks?’ Eloise invites the audience to witness and participate in protocol with sincerity, hilarity, and gratitude.  This work honours the inner terrain of the body, our ties to land and experience that we carry with us from where we have come, and the physical land on which we currently stand.
