One is a multi award-winning Inuit throat singer, the other a trailblazing Greenlandic mask dancer. Tanya Tagaq and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory fuse their unique performance styles in this concert event combining tour-de-force vocals, kinetic movement and powerful spoken word. At once exquisite and unnerving, these two larger-than-life artists cast their shared experiences and traditional roots in contemporary light, opening a path to reconciliation.

"Tanya Tagaq and friend Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory are known for their expressive and unabashedly physical performances, which often delve into the dark side of humanity"

- CBC

"She calls herself a sound sculptor, but what I experience when I hear Tagaq perform is always more like a weather system, swirling unpredictably through her body, the room and myself"

- THE GLOBE AND MAIL
