Out of the Longhouse:

An Evening with Lee Maracle and Bill Coleman


Illustration by Catherine Dallaire 

Acclaimed author Lee Maracle and renowned dancer Bill Coleman, retell the Salish Longhouse Flood Story. Oral tradition and contemporary dance weave together, bringing words to life with movement and sound, including tap dancing and live foley sound fx interspersed with personal tales of catastrophes - and aftermaths, too. These two master storytellers use words and movement to address issues of reconciliation - with each other, with our own bodies of experience, and with our times - in a way that is powerful, personal and magical.
