Edinburgh International Festival presents Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools
A dramatic meeting between two extraordinary artists, examining their intertwined histories, colonial legacies and the changing climate we all face.
A dramatic meeting between two extraordinary artists, and between the northern and southern extremes of Canada. In the Inuktitut language, when a knife is dull, it is said to ‘have no face’.
The word ‘kiinalik’ translates to mean the knife is sharp — or, ‘it has a face’.
In Kiinalik, Evalyn Parry’s heartfelt personal anthems combine with Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory’s gripping uaajeerneq — a Greenlandic mask dance — to give voice to their intertwined histories, colonial legacies and the changing climate we all face.
Ticket prices: £20
