As part of the ORIGINS Festival Closing Night Event, legendary Inuit throat singer and tour-de-force vocalist Tanya Tagaq improvises a mesmerising soundscape for the controversial 1922 silent film Nanook of the North.

Nanook of the North was released in 1922 and is thought to be one of the first feature length documentaries. The film follows the lives of an Inuit family and is considered one of the best documentaries ever made. 

This is a unique chance to see Tagaq perform in an informal, intimate setting on the Great Map at the heart of the National Maritime Museum.

Please note that this is not a seated event - the audience is invited to sit on the floor or remain standing. 

Please bring proof of student status if you purchase the discounted student ticket.
