About This Production
“Aalaapi” depicts a marginalised group that is hardly ever given a voice: the Inuit. With great skill, Laurence Dauphinais, radio creator Marie-Laurence Rancourt and the two performers Nancy Saunders and Ulivia Uviluk have designed a quiet and poetic work that uses documentary material to tell the story of Indigenous artists who oscillate between different realities of life: from a large Canadian city to remote places behind the Arctic Circle. “Aalaapi” invites the audience to experience an open encounter with the unknown, pointing beyond any real or imagined boundary.
In cooperation with Magnéto and supported by Nouveau Chapitre.
Creative residencies: Quai 5160 – maison de la culture de Verdun, Ateliers de LA SERRE – arts vivants, Conseil des arts de Montréal.
Presented in association with Théâtre Gilles-Vigneault.
