About the show:

Blood Lightning is an original, physical, and autobiographical devised piece created between Guatemalan-Canadian artist Joseph Recinos and Colin Bruce Anthes. Sitting in between performance and ritual, Blood Lighting is an artistic offering that honours ancestry and spirit. Niagara-raised performer Joseph Recinos guides us through the complex terrain of being from two places at once. Through the use of traditional storytelling, hip-hop, movement, song and poetry and travelling from Niagara to Guatemala to Standing Rock, this one-person show chronicles the true story of one artist’s reclaiming of their ancestral voice.
