Atlantic Ballet Atlantique Canada Presents: Pisuwin

| Sobey Family Theatre
Based on a Wolastoq tale, this multidisciplinary piece blends Indigenous storytelling and ballet, redefining this classical form for a diverse, savvy, and contemporary audience. Set to the soaring music of award-winning composer Jeremy Dutcher, Pisuwin features electronic sounds, industrial landscapes, and digital projection juxtaposed with Wolastoq songs and visual motifs.

Pisuwin is choregraphed by Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy with Co-director Possesom Paul.

Pisuwin pushes us to confront our greed and alienation, while inspiring us to take a different path; one of connection, community and wholeness. 

 ‘’Being in the audience for this shared experience, it felt like I was witnessing history in the making. The seeds of healing are being planted with this performance, may we learn to nurture them.” 

“What I learned last night, what I believe was on stage last night, is a display of what moving forward in a good way – reaching out with an open heart – looks and feels like.”

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
