Artcirq's picture

20 December 2007


Artcirq tells the story of how a group of young circus performers try to teach young Inuit to use circus to find more meaning in life and reject suicide. Working and training together over the course of two summers, a group of students from Montreal's National Circus School and local Inuit youth from Igloolik produce a unique circus performance which marries Inuit traditions with classic elements of the Big Top. Written, produced and performed by Isuma's Inuusiq Youth Group.
