Shumka on Tour
After a successful spring tour, Shumka on Tour returns this fall. The performance in Edmonton is one show only, by popular demand, at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Tickets start at $25 and are available at shumka.com.
Celebrating Shumka’s legacy as one of the most exciting dance companies in Canada, Shumka on Tour will feature four works including Shumka’s whimsical Mosquito’s Wedding, a true feast for the eyes and a love story with a message that all we need is love; Shumka’s most recent film project – Promised Land – recognizing the 130th Anniversary of Ukrainian immigration to Canada; Echoes of Hopak, a salute to the past through a celebration of Shumka’s signature work; and My Yeh/We Are, a moving dance tribute to the conflict in Ukraine dedicated to long-time Shumka composer, Yuri Shevchenko who passed away in Kyiv, Ukraine on March 23.
