Toronto’s COOLEST Festival returns with the premiere of Ikumagialiit

Festival of Cool: The Arctic features new Indigenous performance art show, Ikumagialiit

December 12, 2019 at Harbourfront Centre

WHAT: Ikumagialiit (“those that need fire”), a new Indigenous performance art show featuring contemporary Uaajeerneg (Greenlandic mark dance), throat singing, electric cello and beats, with hand-drawn ‘light’ and video, debuts in Toronto at Harbourfront Centre’s Festival of Cool: The Arctic. The quartet brings together four strong women spanning generations, acclaimed artists Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Christine Tootoo, Cris Derksen and Jamie Griffiths. Working across different artistic disciplines, they create structured improvisations, questioning how to hold space for fear when pressure is mounting. Ikumagialiit takes on the metaphor of the bowhead whale, learning how to breathe in the depths and exploring Inuit practices of meditation and spiritual skill-building to make this journey.

Festival of Cool: The Arctic takes place December 10 – 15, 2019 and is inspired by and celebrates the International Year of Indigenous Languages with programming from across the Arctic Circle including contemporary music, film, visual art and thought-provoking panels – proving that even extreme cold can be cool.

WHEN: December 12, 2019, 8 p.m.

WHERE: Harbourfront Centre, Studio Theatre
235 Queens Quay Blvd.
Toronto, ON M5J 2G8
