I want to imagine they are prospecting in a foot of wet sand. And when the work is done, each exits in their own direction [...] rolling away in thunderous, quadraphonic ocean song.
— Melissa Olson (Ojibwe)

Weave is a dance project drawn from the interwoven and interdependent nature of our world. In Weave, individual and embodied stories are the vibrant threads that mesh in a performance woven of story, dance, moving image, and quadraphonic sound.

Weave is created by Native choreographer Rosy Simas, in collaboration with an international artists: composer, François Richomme; performers, Zoë Klein, Sam Aros Mitchell, Valerie Oliveiro, Leslie Parker, and George Stamos; writers, Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán and Heid E. Erdrich; lighting designer, Carolyn Wong; and production assistant, Eric Larson.
