Weave (2018)

Visit Weave website: rosysimasweave.com

Weave is a dance project drawn from the interwoven and interdependent nature of our world. In Weave, individual and embodied stories are the vibrant threads that mesh in a performance woven of story, dance, moving image, and quadrophonic sound.

The Weave team brings together an international gathering of Native, feminist, queer, transgender, and people of color artists, working together through the creative leadership, vision, and direction of Seneca chorographer, Rosy Simas.

Rosy Simas understands water. She understands the human is water. That water is human. That understanding becomes movement in Weave.
— Marcie Rendon
