Dear Friends,

On behalf of KDT I want to take the time to thank all those who have been supporting us since our inception and to those who took the time to see the World Premiere performance of TransMigration!! 

Going on Dreams by Jason Jenkins 
TransMigration was a resounding success from the energy-charged Opening Night to the standing ovations following each performance. We couldn't have done it without the commitment with talent from our collaborators and the continued love and support of our community.

"Last night I remembered why I work in the arts! It's because there are moments when something such as the new dance work Transmigration, truly moves you and inspires you to encourage the wonderful talented artists we have in our indigenous communities such as Santee Smith"

"Just saw "TransMigration" last night. Wow! This was a stunning performance. Congratulations to all of you. The ancestors are smiling proudly at what you've created."


"Inspiring, beautiful in colour, movement and sound. An homage worthy of the Copper Thunderbird with exceptional performances by the whole cast. Santee Smith has once again created a truly landmark performance that redefines what is new and vibrant in North American Culture."
