Part of the contemporary dance in Mediterranean DANSEM#20, Théâtre Joliette in Marseille will present on Nov  24 and 25, the performance We Wait in the Darkness by Native American (Haudenosaunee people, Seneca nation, Heron clan) choreographer Rosy Simas. Her dance is conceived as a healing process of all the scarves printed in her Seneca grand-mother’s DNA. Collaborating with the French composer François Richomme, Rosy's personal construction is structured around loss, family, perseverance, and motherland.
