The Mush Hole

Created and Produced by Santee Smith  

Tour Remount by Kaha:wi Dance Theatre (Six Nations & Toronto, Ontario)

Created by award-winning dance artist Santee Smith, The Mush Hole is a powerful and timely performance that uses song, dance and theatre to explore the lives and spirits of children who were forced to attend Ontario’s Mohawk Institute residential school.


The Mush Hole reflects the realities of the Mohawk Institute residential school experience and offers a way to open dialogue and to heal, through acknowledgment and honouring the spirit of Survivors and families that were impacted.” — Santee Smith
