There were 86 workers on the bridge when it collapsed, high above the St Lawrence River, and seventy-five died including thirty-three ironworkers from the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, famous to this day for their high steel work. Some of the dead were crushed by the twisted steel; others died from the fall or by drowning. Award-winning traditional and contemporary dancer, educator and Sky Dancers’ choreographer Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo is originally from Kahnawake, and her great-grandfather, Louis D’Ailleboust, was among those who perished. Sky Dancers is not only about loss, pain and struggle: it illuminates the resilience of the Kahnawake women who took in and helped widows and children, and Indigenous and non-Indigenous people pulling together in the aftermath of this avoidable tragedy. Set to a mix of contemporary and traditional music, Sky Dancers integrates dance, theatre, video projections and sophisticated set design to shine light on a story that needs telling: building bridges between people and generations.
