The circus comes to town
Drama, drumming and a very realistic wolf come to town through Tupiq A.C.T. (Arctic Circus Troupe). Nunavik’s professional circus troupe takes storytelling into a new dimension through a two-screen video that explores the repercussions of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement.
Do not miss this! A sound installation highlights the skills of traditional throat singing sensation Evie Mark, who has toured the world, performing alongside orchestras and with other traditional artists to share her culture. For Our Land, Our Art, the Ivujivik-born artist sings alongside Akinisie Sivuarapik, who was born and raised in Puvirnituq, and is also known for her drum dancing. The listener stands within a giant felt pod embroidered with traditional tattoo patterns to listen in on the intimate performance.
The amazing amautik
Taqralik Partidge can do anything. Writer, artist, spoken-word poet, curator. Here, she is inspired by a soapstone carving of a mother (Maggie Ituvik Tayara, 1955) to create a heavily beaded amautik.
