Tanya Tagaq and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory
Exquisite and unnerving; unsettling and otherworldly, these two major artists cast their shared experiences and traditional roots in a contemporary light. Polaris Prize-winning Inuit vocalist Tanya Tagaq and trailblazing Greenlandic mask dancer Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory combine tour-de-force vocals with expressive and unabashedly physical performances into a powerful whole that expresses the spectrum of humanity.
Together, these groundbreaking Canadian performers delve into the darkness and emerge into the light as they reclaim Indigenous women’s stories on a journey across themes of retribution and reconciliation.
