Music, Rhythm, Movement
“Martineau puts Indigenous creative arts in the spotlight—and the world is watching.” – Kate Hildebrant
Jarrett Martineau, charismatic host of ‘Reclaimed’ on CBC curates a galaxy of potent voices from across Canada in this evening bursting with talent. From Inuit throat singing to 808-hip-hop beats, join us for an unforgettable immersive evening of genre-bending music and diasporic dancefloor beats. The night will feature multiple Vancouver premieres by some of Canada’s brightest stars in South Asian, Indigenous, Queer, Filipinx, and diasporic music and movement. As communities long excluded from popular culture reclaim spaces to be heard and be seen, Conjuring the Future makes space for many voices and bodies to weave, flow, and dance together. Come celebrate power and pride, and conjure our collective futures into being.
