Returning to her grandmother’s homeland on the Lac Seul reserve in Ontario, Montreal-based choreographer of Ojibway and Cree origin, Lara Kramer, confronts the North, where a war is taking shape. A northern epic with post-apocalyptic ballad tunes, “Windigo” exorcises demons, the consequences of violence perpetrated against Indigenous lands and bodies.
