In Situ: Tanya Tagaq in Nanook of the North

Oct 2, 2015 • 8pm

The award-winning Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq, named one of Rolling Stone’s “Artists You Need to Know in 2015,” performs a live score, created with composer Derek Charke, to the 1922 silent film Nanook of the North. Joined by percussionist Jean Martin and violinist Jesse Zubot, Tagaq reclaims the film’s images of life in an early twentieth-century Inuit community in Northern Quebec. Tagaq employs exquisite improvisations with traditions roots, a style she has perfected over a decade of performances on major stages worldwide and through collaborations with Björk, Mike Patton, and many more.
