Chan Centre for the Performing Arts – Friday 11 March 2022 8:00 PM
The genre-bending, multilingual artist Elisapie moves between Inuktitut, English, and French as she explores folk music, textural indie rock, poetics, and the breadth and depth of contemporary Indigenous culture. Hailed as“a powerful record, and a rare album where both the music and narrative are equally stunning” by Exclaim!, her latest full-length Ballad of The Runaway Girl was shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize in 2019. Elisapie confronts the violence of colonialism while harnessing the deep strength that comes from Indigenous interconnectedness to the land, animals, and people.
Please note that this performance is being sold at 50% capacity.
Indigenous Artists for this Event!
Singer-songwriter, director, and activist, Elisapie represents the wild and rough beauty of the North. Her next album set to be released in late 2023 is a journey through her childhood memories as she revisits classics of the rocknroll canon in Inuktitut, her mother tongue, as an offering to the Inuit.
