We will create a 'Theatre for Young Audiences' production combining Inuit legends, physical theatre, mask, puppetry, video projection, and traditional throat-singing. When director Heidi Specht met Inuit storyteller and award-winning author Michael Kusugak, they found they shared common goals. Michael works hard to preserve his traditional culture and to share it with the world. Our production will inter-weave traditional stories with Michael's life; he will play himself both as a young boy and an adult as he struggles to adapt to a changing world. We will work together to seamlessly combine Michael's mastery of oral storytelling with Pangaea Arts' expertise in physical theatrical forms, in an effort to increase the range and appeal of his message â€“ large polar bears, walruses, creatures from Inuit mythology will share the space with projections of northern lights, and audiences will see the inside of an igloo. We will target young audiences, while sending a message to all ages, encouraging others to find their own cultural stories and building bridges across communities.
