Join the creative team and cast members as they provide a glimpse into the
collaboration and creative process of Shumka’s world premiere production, Ancestors and Elders. Ancestors and Elders features a cast of Shumka Dancers and multidisciplinary Indigenous artists. Together they share the story of the first Ukrainian
newcomers to Canada, exploring the shared values and respected differences between these hopeful settlers and the First Nations people they encounter in a new land. The evening will feature visual art by Lana Whiskeyjack and Svitlana Kravchuk and discussion from members of the creative team.
