redskyperformance.com. Sandra Laronde, artistic director of Red Sky, explains the creative process behind Tono, an innovative three-country project involving eleven dancers and musicians.

This new outstanding dance creation brings together the Indigenous cultures of Canada, Mongolia and China and is heavily grounded in the theme of horse culture.

Dance has always played a vital role in Aboriginal cultures. It is a connection to the spirit, to the land, and a deep expression to our gratitude. In the Indigenous worldview, the horse is revered and respected. When one thinks about the horse at war, at play or as a helper of humankind, we realize the horse has made a considerable contribution to civilizations around the world.
