Circus Show: Tupituqaq

The Inuit circus troupe Tupiq A.C.T. will grace the Museum’s Theatre for three performances of Tupituqaq.


Maina, a young Inuk, ventures into the tundra in search of her lost grandmother. On this journey to find Ananatsiaq, she encounters several mythological creatures, including Mahaha, the tickling monster. Thanks to her many talents and the ancestral wisdom handed down from generation to generation, she makes a journey across the tundra that is half dreamlike, half nightmare. This contemporary circus show draws a line between current issues and the Nunavik Inuit community’s traditions.

Tupituqaq is presented during National Indigenous Peoples Day and National Indigenous History Month.

Tupiq A.C.T.

Tupiq A.C.T. (Arctic Circus Troupe) is a radiant display of Inuit culture through circus arts and traditional Inuit artistic disciplines such as throat singing, artistic sports and drum dancing. The troupe was founded in 2018 through the Cirqiniq social circus program, which has been working with at-risk Inuit teens since 2009.
