Summary: In March 2002, the Regina-based dance company New Dance Horizons performed Robert Bringhurst's Ursa Major: A Polyphonic Masque for Speakers & Dancers, a work that had been commissioned as part of an evening of modern performance and dance entitled Invisible Ceremonies.

The subject of the masque is Ursa Major, the great bear constellation, one of the most universal themes in world mythology.
