Description

Aalaapi is a hybrid project combining both theatre and radio. Over 8 months, five young Inuit women from Northern Quebec have accepted to speak about their lives by means of a radio documentary, a piece sculpted through their own words and silences. On stage, two other Inuit women spend a day together while the documentary plays on their radio. And they do, at some point, need to challenge it. Through this multisensory piece, the audience gets immersed in Quebec's nordic communities and they are invited to an authentic encounter through the art of listening.
