Red Sky at Night continues the international focus that is at the heart of all of our work: bringing together Indigenous cultures from around the globe to celebrate our diversity, artistic scope and to collaborate on new creative possibilities. Red Sky is about expanding its influence and reach to everyone. Red Sky at Night celebrates the many nations under one sky.
Red Sky at Night was launched in October 2003 to a sold-out house at Little Italy's hotspot, Revival. An exciting mix of well-known artists and media attended including Tom Hill, Amos Key, Susan Aglukark, Sandra Laronde, Molly Johnson, Lorraine Segato and George Leach, among others. The second Red Sky at Night took place in August 2004 at the Carlu, a 850-seat concert hall, which also sold out. It featured Canada's Tomson Highway, Susan Aglukark, George Leach, Amos Key Jr, and Lisa Odjig as well as Peru's Patricia Cano and Greenland's Makka Kleist. The evening featured thrilling excerpts from Red Sky's celebrated works Caribou Song and Raven Stole the Sun performed by Sandra Laronde, Carlos Rivera, Jonathan Fisher, Rick Sacks, and Rick Shadrach Lazar.
Red Sky at Night is a truly spectacular and hip evening of live music, dance, and theatre from a line-up of outstanding international Indigenous performers.
"My God that was amazing! I'm so proud of what Red Sky is doing. I can't wait to see the next production."

"What was particularly impressive about Red Sky at Night was the extraordinary diversity of the audience - all ages - all backgrounds - enjoying themselves together."
– John Hobday
"Striking in many ways...any single act could have been a headliner...a sold out crowd of 850 people on a balmy Tuesday night at the Carlu. No one left disapppointed."
