KIRA, The Path | La Voie celebrates humanity as one village and its sacred bond to nature. It features a dynamic cast of dancers and percussionists whose evocative chants and powerful drum beats invoke Mother Earth's wisdom and echo her auspicious warning: the invisible cord that links us to her is wasting away. The interpreters are guided by the voices of our ancestors - the guardians of our moral code and spiritual guides.
