TAPECODE 1039.01

An experimental performance based collaborative film by Steven Davies (Coast Salish, Snuneymuxw and European ancestry) with Jeanette Kotowich (Cree Métis) and Dani Zaviceanu (Romanian Canadian), accompanied by a re-mix by artist, DJ, and sound producer Dean Hunt (Heiltsuk Nation).

“Returning to an Indigenous knowing body our movement has the ability to transcend & decolonize previous patterning. Written in My Blood expresses longing & belonging through how we relate to the environment around us. At any moment we arrive to where we are with all histories/territories accounted for – and we reference identity from this place. The movement score is derived from deep listening & reverence for land; all of that which sustains us. Influenced by traditional and contemporary dance forms the performance uses breath, impulse & instinct to unravel and honour the moment.” – Jeanette Kotowich
