On film: Tia Kushniruk’s ‘monolith’ explores gender, power, & dance


Edmonton dancer and artist, Tia Kushniruk often felt like she was forced into a box, as an aspiring Canadian dancer. Her experiences have not only shaped her as an artist, but also inspired her new short film, monolith.

Using a mix of dance and dialogue to showcase the power struggle between a woman, and her mysterious control figure, monolith will be presented virtually by Mile Zero Dance this weekend, Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17, 2021.

Tia recently spoke with CKUA’s Scott Zielsdorf about the film, and the inspiration behind it.
