Red Sky

Indigenous Perfomance Company

Red Sky Performance is a leading company of Indigenous performance in Canada and worldwide. Since its creation in 2000, Red Sky’s vision is to lead in the creation, elevation, and evolution of contemporary Indigenous performance and make a significant contribution to the artistic and cultural vibrancy of Canada and the world.

Now in our 22 nd year of performance (dance, theatre, music, and media), we continue to create inspiring experiences of contemporary Indigenous arts and culture that transform society in meaningful ways. The vision of Red Sky Performance derives from its creator Sandra Laronde (Misko Kizhigoo Migizii Kwe) which means “Red Sky Eagle Woman” in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibway) language
from the Teme-Augama Anishinaabe (People of the Deep Water).

Her vision is dedicated to expanding and elevating the ecology of performance informed by Indigenous worldview and culture. Touring since 2003, we have delivered close to 3,000 performances across Canada including international performances in 21 countries on four continents, including two Cultural Olympiads (Beijing and Vancouver), World Expo in Shanghai, Venice Biennale, and Jacob’s
Pillow, among others. At the same time, we remain deeply rooted and regularly perform in urban, rural, and reserve communities across Turtle Island.
