Juniata Presents: Tanya Tagaq in Concert with Nanook of the North

Juniata Presents: Tanya Tagaq in Concert with Nanook of the North

Folk, contemporary
Celebrated Inuit performer Tanya Tagaq reclaims the controversial 1922 film Nanook of the North. Tagaq, along with percussionist Jean Martin and violinist Jesse Zubot, performs a live accompaniment to the film’s silent images of life in an early 20th-century Inuit community in Northern Quebec. Drawing on her childhood on Nunavut’s Victoria Island, and on her mother’s memories of forced relocation from the film’s location, Tagaq transforms the images through exquisite, unnerving vocal improvisations rooted in traditional and contemporary culture, adding tremendous feeling and depth to a complex mix of beautiful representations and racially charged cliche´s. Nanook of the North was commissioned by the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), where it premiered to critical acclaim in 2012 as part of TIFF First Nations.
