KIVIUQ RETURNS to Greenland

In September 2018, Jamie Griffiths of Chickweed Arts has been commissioned by Qaggiavuut Society to return to work on the Inuit play, KIVIUQ RETURNS, as Technical Director, Scenographer and Videographer/Photographer.

Kiviuq Returns will be performed in Nuuk, Greenland September 21-23 2018 at the National Theatre of Greenland

Kiviuq Returns had its world premiere in July 2017 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, with a video projection design onto moveable scrims, designed and implemented by Jamie, assisted by a Qaggiavuut video trainee, Rico Manitok. For this Greenland remount of the play, Rico and Jamie will work together again and plan to add some new touches to the design.

With new cast members drawn from Inuit film and music, it promises to be an exciting show, and will be directed by the new Artistic Director of Qaggiavuut, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, herself returning from her own award-winning show in Toronto and across Canada.

Kiviuq Returns has also been booked to play to Toronto audiences in January 2019 at the Tarragon Theatre.
