Los Cuatro Vientos
Los Cuatro Vientos tells the story of Canada’s development into a pluralistic society. It refers to “The Four Powers” or “Four Directions”: an aboriginal belief –shared by several cultures around the globe—that there are gifts or powers coming from different wind directions that contribute to the Circle of Life. The characteristics of each of the “powers” which remarkably resemble those of the immigrants that came to Canada, were the inspiration for the choreography and the music for each piece. The underlying meaning of the show is to honour the beauty that can be developing when different cultures come together. Very appropriately, this beauty is celebrated by Flamenco, which itself is the exciting result of the blending of cultures.
Los Cuatro Vientos is our collective story.
