TEC KIVIUT RETURN
Kiviuq’s return- An Inuit Epic
Is an Inuit collective creation carried by the Qaggit Artic Theatre Company, which has toured in several Canadian cities. With no Inuit theatre space to speak of and wanting more than anything to share the stories they had learned as children, the creative artists went to visit the elders known as the "Inumariit" and whom the company describes as "the last indigenous Canadian people to have lived their lives traditionally on the land". It was they who taught them the history of Kiviuq, the legendary Inuit hunter. Combining traditional throat singing, music, the use of moving images and of course theater, Kiviuq return toured several Canadian cities.
