Description

A dramatic meeting between two extraordinary artists, examining their intertwined histories, colonial legacies and the changing climate we all face.

In the Inuktitut language, ‘kiinalik’ translates to mean the knife is sharp, or, ‘it has a face’.

A concert and a conversation, Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools is the meeting place of two people, and between the northern and southern extremes of Canada. Inuk artist Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and queer theatre-maker Evalyn Parry met on an Arctic expedition from Iqaluit to Greenland. Now sharing a stage, these two powerful storytellers map new territory together in a work that gives voice and body to the histories, culture, and climate we’ve inherited and asks how we reckon with these sharp tools.

Post show discussion: Friday 4 November

Part of BIAF’s 2022 focus on artists from Canada.
