The Kanyen'kéha (Mohawk) word skén:nen (Sgah:nah) translates to mean peace and balance. On the edge of collapse, in an uncertain and imbalanced reality, the production SKéN:NEN conveys a narrative set in an imagined post-environmental catastrophe world. The focus is on Indigenous futurism in performance, exploring themes of resilience within self, community, and the natural world.

Through mesmerizing choreography, storytelling, and innovative media projection design audiences witnessed the journey of a young Kahnyen’kehàka girl and other climate survivors underscored by crucial need to remember and revitalize humanity’s interconnectedness with an environment in recovery. For the young girl this is remembering her rites of passage and learning from the Earth.

This performance will include a post-show chat.
