Asiu (Lost)

Footage from Artcirq's performance of ASIU (Lost) at the 2014 edition of the Alianait Arts Festival in Iqaluit.

Asiu is Artcirq's latest show and is inspired by the traditional Inuit legend Amaqup Nunaat (The Land of Wolves) about two brothers who find themselves lost in the mysterious world of the Shadow People.

As a comical interpretation of this centuries old story, the show is part of Artcirq's development process to bring the full legend to the stage in an enticing multi-disciplinary Inuit production, complete with the true dramatic ending of the legend.
