The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Juno award winner iskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ for two live shows at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre (VDPAC) on Sunday, March 13, 2022 at 7:30pm.

iskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ (short for waseskwan iskwew, meaning "blue sky woman") is, among many other things, an artist – a creator and communicator of music and of movement, of pictures, poetry and prose. And through it all, she’s a teller of stories that have impacted our past and will inform our future. Some are her own, some belong to others, and some belong to us all.

The Stars is iskwē’s newest release (March 5, 2021). It is the inverse of her third album acākosīk starting with the title which is the English translation of the Cree word acākosīk. Where acākosīk is a blaze of sonic exploration, The Stars is an elegant and intimate sharing of the collection allowing iskwē’s songwriting, voice and spirit to shine. The Stars features entirely new arrangements of the six songs with iskwē accompanied by a trio of piano (Michael Shand), cello (Mariel Gonzalez), and violin (Laura C Bates) recorded live-off-the-floor at Revolution Recording in Toronto and a dramatic orchestral reimagining of “Night Danger (Lovers Mix)” recorded with the FILMharmonic Orchestra (Prague). Where acākosīk demanded our attention, The Stars invites us into an emotional and soulful experience with iskwē.

With the audience seated cabaret-style right on the Performing Arts Centre’s main stage, our SPOTLIGHT OnSTAGE Concert Series allows for audiences to relax and enjoy a socially distanced concert in this popular and more intimate performance format.
