The 2014 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival presents Night


PuSh International Performing Arts Festival & Touchstone Theatre present:
By Human Cargo (Toronto, Canada)

 In Night, the lives of a Toronto anthropologist and a 16-year-old Inuk girl intersect powerfully during 24- hour darkness in Pond Inlet, Nunavut. Daniella is armed with good intentions and the bones of Piuyuq's grandfather that have been sitting on a museum shelf for decades. She imagines a momentous repatriation, and instead discovers a web of cascading tragedies that haunt Piuyuq and her family.

 A cross-cultural theatre creation, written and directed by Christopher Morris, and performed in English and Inuktitut (with surtitles), Night is a poetic and dramatic exploration of the clash between Inuit and colonial culture. Created over a three-year process in the arctic darkness of Pond Inlet and Akureyri, Iceland, Night turns southern tropes about the north upside down as it examines themes of ancestry, intention and darkness.

 "... there's enough heart and soul here to make this a Night to remember for audiences of any age. [Four stars]" - Toronto Sun
