“Choosing silence to hear something beautiful”: that’s the meaning of Aalaapi in Inuktitut. This play combines documentary and radio testimonies to immerse audiences in the daily lifes of five young women from Nunavik who share their lives between the North and the South. These intimate portraits, depicted with speech, sound and silences, reveal the richness of their history and the power of their future.
