The Man and the Giant: An Eskimo Legend

Top of page

A hunter is pursued, bound up and carried to a cave in this legend of a river and of how fog came to the land. The story is enacted by Inuit using katadjak or throatsinging. The audience is locked in an alien world of sights and sounds where human activity seems propulsed by primeval forces.
