Spirit Fest children's highlight: The Great Mountain

Youth and adult audiences alike are in for a special treat when the Red Sky performing company brings their original production of The Great Mountain to the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre as part of Spirit Fest. Red Sky is Canada’s leading indigenous performance company featuring dance, theatre and music. The Great Sky is “an eco-adventure story in the guise of an action-packed play that entertains and empowers the imaginations of children and families alike.” The production has garnered rave reviews during its first tour in 2011, including major eastern arts and media outlets. The story follows Nuna, who embarks on a journey to through a raging river to a melting glacier after hearing things she couldn’t understand. The tale is based on a traditional Northern Plains story which was adapted by writer Tracy Power and choreographed by Carlos Rivera and Sandra Lalonde, the world-class Artistic Director, CEO and driving force behind Red Sky. Check online for accompanying lesson and learning plans you can work through with your kids. Affordably-priced tickets at the RPAC for the Saturday, Feb. 2, 11 a.m. show. $2 kids, $4 adults, $10 for family of four.  - Red Sky image
