Kahawi Dance Theatre: Medicine Bear

Kahawi Dance Theatre: Medicine Bear

Through whimsical music, dance and storytelling, Medicine Bear weaves into one magical narrative traditional Iroquoian stories: how the Bear Clan came to be known as the “Keeper of the Medicines” and the hunter who discovered the gift of healing. Following oral tradition practices, Medicine Bear teaches virtues of compassion, thankfulness and respect for nature in a way that is playful and thought provoking for young and family audiences. Culturally and artistically rich the performance includes characters: feisty Lil’Bear; kind-hearted Bear Clan woman KoKwari; clumsy young hunter Radolats; omnipotent Great Spirit/ Todah and mysterious plant spirit OhGee-Jah.

À travers de la musique fantaisiste, de la danse et de la narration, Medicine Bear raconte en un récit magique les histoires traditionnelles des Iroquois: comment le Clan des Ours est devenu le «Gardien des Médicaments» et le chasseur qui a découvert le don de la guérison. En suivant les pratiques de la tradition orale, Medicine Bear enseigne des vertus de compassion, de la reconnaissance et du respect de la nature d’une manière ludique et stimulante pour les jeunes et le public familial.
