“Dancing in the ‘Darkness”
When Minneapolis choreographer Rosy Simas decided to delve into her family history, it took more than one venue and multiple media to share her discoveries. For her project “We Wait in the Darkness,” she created an installation of maps and mementos at All My Relations Gallery and gave a solo performance at Red Eye Theater. Simas, who is Seneca, drew upon the experiences of her grandmother, including the flooding of reservation lands in western New York during the 1960s to make way for the Kinzua Dam, which violated a treaty dating back to George Washington’s era. The quietly poignant work resonated for its generosity of spirit and dedication to truth-telling. Simas will continue to tour the show in 2015.”  – CAROLINE PALMER, StarTribune, December 29, 2014
