Written in My Blood

Written in My Blood
Written in My Blood is a performance based collaborative short film.
A film by Steven Thomas Davies (Coast Salish, Snuneymuxw and European ancestry) in collaboration with contemporary dance artist Jeanette Kotowich (Cree Métis and European ancestry), Dani Zaviceanu, and accompanied by a remix by 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.
