Ursa Major, is well known in the prairie sky. Her mythological inheritance lingers on the horizon. soft foot draws from a body of work that began many years ago, including an Ursa character created for Ziyian Kwan in Rouge-gorge’s recent group work, in fur till spring.

soft foot, a term coined by prairie movement maverick Amelia Itcush, is a constellation of images and actions in an inter-play of myth and body memory. This work is an ode to Amelia, choreographed by Robin Poitras, commissioned and performed by Ziyian Kwan.
