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"
"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"
