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
