Goddess, Alive or Dead?

Tomson Highway (piano and voice)
Patricia Cano (voice)

La Sala Rossa, Montréal, Québec


In English. One of North America’s leading Aboriginal writers, Tomson Highway presents his words and songs in a very special evening. He is joined onstage by Patty Cano, an actor with Arianne Mnouchkine’s Théâtre du Soleil, and Eastern European saxophonist Ulrich Kempendorff, whose wistful notes lend just the right feeling to the Cree composer’s nostalgic music. An exceptional opportunity to see three old friends perform, after honing their talents in Europe for years, in the intimate, romantic setting of La Sala Rossa.
