Dreamwalker’s vision can be summed up in three words: engage, exchange, experience.

Our collaborative work opens doors within ourselves and between each other.  Our repertoire raises issues of humanity and the choices that people make. We are dedicated to offering diverse individuals a safe place to explore, discover, and be challenged by actively seeking opportunities to convene, communicate and to co-create experiences with and beyond words, through the languages of our whole bodies.  By moving together we explore what it is to be human.

Dreamwalker Dance Company acknowledges that we live and operate on sacred land that has been home to many Indigenous peoples for millennia.  We acknowledge the diversity of the First Peoples and recognize the territories of the Wendat peoples, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabeg, The Chippewa, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Toronto comes from the Kanien’kéha word Tkaronto, which can be translated as “where the trees stand in water”. Tkaronto is subject of the The Dish With One Spoon wampum belt covenant, a treaty was made between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.  

We are grateful to have the opportunity to live, dance, gather, share and connect with others on this territory.

 

It is our intent that everyone feels invited, wanted, and welcomed to participate in our events and activities. We continue to do the work to learn, unlearn, and relearn in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. We stand in solidarity with Black communities, Indigenous communities, people of colour, and with 2SLGBTQQIA communities. We aim to be part of the forward movement to create a supportive and safe world that is equitable for all of us. In light of this, as you engage with us, with our events, activities and our work, we will continue to ask for your feedback.
