Tupituqaq Full Show


Tupituqaq is the story of Maina, a young Inuk, who goes on the land searching for her grandmother (Ananatsiaq). On her journey, Maina is guided by mythical northern creatures, amongst them, Mahaha with its long hair and nails, who can make you laugh to death by tickling you. Because of her many talents, curiosity and wise attitude inherited from her ancestors, she is led on a path of self-discovery and unraveling the powers of magical seeds she has been granted. Tupiqtuqaq dances between reality and the dream world using contemporary circus, and traditional Inuit arts to create the worlds inhabited by the two main characters  and the strange creatures that share the tundra.
