DANCING EARTH is an ensemble of performance artists under the direction of choreographer Rulan Tangen, representing many First Nations. We gather as individual artists to create experimental yet elemental dances that reflect our rich cultural heritage and to explore identity as contemporary Native peoples. We are passionately committed to Indigenous contemporary dance as primal yet articulate movement - blood memory in motion - that speaks to all beings. We believe in dance as an expression that can illuminate issues of cultural, historical, philosophical, mythic, and spiritual relevance.
