Asiu (Lost)

Footage from Artcirq's performance of ASIU (Lost) at the 2014 edition of the Alianait Arts Festival in Iqaluit.

Asiu is Artcirq's latest show and is inspired by the traditional Inuit legend Amaqup Nunaat (The Land of Wolves) about two brothers who find themselves lost in the mysterious world of the Shadow People.


In 2009, Rachel Uyarasuk, elder of the Inuit community of Igloolik (Nunavut), evokes the ancestors whose name she received at birth. She explains how this transmission ensured their return among the world of the living.

Inuit Cree Reconciliation

In the documentary film Inuit Cree Reconciliation (Inuit Adlait Isumagijuniqatiginiiq), Zacharias Kunuk and Neil Diamond team up to research the events and historical impacts of a 1770's war between Inuit and Cree in Northern Québec.

Following the Peace Celebration Event held at Nastapoka River in northern Québec by a small group of Inuit and Cree in the summer of 2011, Zacharias Kunuk (Inuit) and Neil Diamond (Cree) - two of Canada's most respected filmmakers - interview Inuit and Cree Elders in the side-by-side communities of Kuujjuarapik and Whapmagootsui researching an old 1770's war between the two nations and its impact on people today.

Research for the project began in 2010. Check out some of the initial interviews here.

As a parallel project to the film, the ARTCO project introduced Inuit and Cree children in the community to new media tools which were used in a multidisciplinary artistic process to explore past and present realities, to connect with others, practice collective action and create a better future.
