Led by Minnesota Book Award winner and author Heid E. Erdrich (Ojibwe), this workshop offers teachers and artist and educator’s perspective on Weave. Through hands-on exercises and guided writing, Heid will illustrate how each of your students can expand their awareness of indigenous ways of listening and knowing. This is an opportunity for teachers interested in or attending Weave or those seeking to deepen their knowledge of Native American art and presence in Minnesota.
Weave is a dance project drawn from the interwoven and interdependent nature of our world. In Weave, individual and embodied stories are the vibrant threads that mesh in a performance woven of story, dance, moving image, and quadrophonic sound. The Weave team brings together an international gathering of Native, feminist, queer, transgender, and people of color artists, working together through the creative leadership, vision, and direction of Seneca choreographer Rosy Simas.

Weave is being created in residencies at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts (Minneapolis), McKnight Fellowships Residency at MANCC (Tallahassee), The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University (St. Paul), and at the Ordway (St. Paul).
This residency allows artists to gather everyday and work on the concept of the work and transform ideas into movement. It provides time and space for artists to collaborate together, share ideas, agree, disagree, and add elements of sound and lights to the work.
Rosy Simas Danse presents Weave as part of Ordway’s Music & Movement series on Saturday, January 12, 2019 7:30 PM at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts. For tickets, call 651.224.4222 | TTY 651.282.3100 or visit ordway.org/weave.
