The Cultch and DanceHouse present Artcirq, The 7 Fingers and Taqqut Productions in Unikkaaqtuat

The Cultch and DanceHouse, in the first year of an ongoing partnership, are thrilled to present Unikkaaqtuat, a co-production from Artcirq (Igloolik), The 7 Fingers (Montréal), and Taqqut Productions (Iqaluit). Unikkaaqtuat will run at the Vancouver Playhouse, on the unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. 

Inspired by Inuit founding myths, with video illustrations by the world-renowned artist Germaine Arnaktauyok, Unikkaaqtuat is an unprecedented multidisciplinary production—with circus, storytelling, music, and video—highlighting the Inuit people, their traditions, and vision for the future. Unikkaaqtuat brings a cast of three Inuit musicians, four Inuit circus artists, and four Montreal-based circus artists to the stage, in a unique new cross-cultural collaboration inspired and influenced by throat-singing, Inuit drumming traditional Inuit hunting techniques, and competitive games. 

In an atmosphere shaped by video projections and a world of shadows, actors, live musicians, and acrobats will transport the audience to an ancient world when life had not known death, days had not seen light, and where Inuit had not met white people. Until…
