Quartiers Danses Festival

The Urban Forest

Artist Barbara Diabo presents a new dance creation in the Urban Forest, in partnership with the Quartiers Danses Festival.

About Barbara Diabo

Barbara Keneratoni Diabo is of Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) descent, originally from Kahnawake and now living in Montreal. A dancer and choreographer for over 25 years, she specializes in combining traditional First Nations dances with contemporary style.

About the work: My Urban Nature

The Indigenous world view sees humans as only an infinitesimal part of nature, equal to animals, plants, water, wind, the sun, the moon, etc. These days, many of us live in the city, seemingly far from any relationship with nature. Are we really out of touch? Can we preserve this contact? What is our relationship to nature in an urban environment? How has it affected us all?

Through the prism of traditional and contemporary Indigenous dances and music, Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo explores these questions in an attempt to create new understandings and a new connection between the city and Mother Earth.
