Made for Entrance way to the Play, Aurora Calling, written by Catherine Ryan, Produced by Tiffany Raae.
These two works
reflect my friendship with Inupiat Grandfather Maynard Eaken and the
gratitude I feel for this Elder and his generosity of heart and spirit. In contrast to the vast peaceful space of In the North I heard your song, In the South I seek youis closer to my home; where stories and teachings
from many ancestral histories mingle with the land and lore; and where concerns
fester over the breaking relationship between the Earth and Humanity. Somehow the poles magnetism, so vivid in
aurora colours, is symbolic of the hope that the relationship can hold. Just so the holding happening between the two
women whose relationship is central to this play, so beautifully named Aurora Calling; as if the Auroras were
calling us home.
