Between the Water and the Sky is a live performance featuring Unity Indigenous vocal ensemble, Peterborough Symphony Orchestra String Quartet, and dancer/choreographer Beany John. A dynamic collaboration between art forms, Between the Water and the Sky features The Medicine Song and Ghost Dancer by Unity and an embodied performance by Beany John and Cotee Harper. It features musical composition by Christine Donkin. Between the Water and the Sky is presented by Artsweek Peterborough in partnership with Unity, Peterborough Symphony Orchestra and Public Energy Performing Arts.

The original version of Between the Water and the Sky was choreographed and performed by Jade Willoughby and Beany John, and explored Willoughby’s journey to reclaim Anishinaabemowin, her linguistic and cultural heritage. It was first performed with Unity, and the PSO String Quartet in 2017.
