Shumka on Tour
Celebrating Shumka’s legacy as one of the most exciting dance companies in Canada, Shumka on Tour will feature two new works including Shumka’s whimsical Mosquito’s Wedding, a true feast for the eyes and a love story with a message that all we need is love; and a salute to the past through an adaptation of Shumka’s celebrated signature work in Echoes of Hopak. In addition, the Tour production will include Shumka’s most recent film project – Promised Land – a tribute to the 130th Anniversary of Ukrainian immigration to Canada; and a dance tribute to the conflict in Ukraine.
Ukrainian dance and music is the soul of the people and now, more than ever, it should be celebrated to show Ukraine’s strength as a nation. Donations will be collected at each performance for Humanitarian Aid for Artists in Ukraine.
