Tanya Tagaq Prepares For Extensive Spring Tour

Celebrated performer Tanya Tagaq brings her jaw-dropping stage shows to several major venues across the US this spring.


Tagaq opens the season by bringing her acclaimed reimagining of the 1922 film "Nanook of the North" to Colorado College, South Puget Sound College, Juniata College, and the Modlin Center for the Arts at the U of Richmond

She will also join the Kronos Quartet at Stanford University for their series Fifty for the Future for which Tagaq composed a commissioned piece entitled Sivunittinni. See below a video from Kronos Quartet where they detail some of the unique extended techniques that Tagaq's piece requires.

In April, Tagaq travels to the Ordway Center For The Arts for their Music & Movement Series where she will present Retribution, from her 2016 album of the same name. The work landed on many of the year's 'best of' lists, with Fader calling it "one of the most stunning records you'll hear this year, or maybe ever." Tagaq will be joined this time by a local, volunteer choir led by frequent Tagaq collaborator Christine Duncan. 

Tagaq will continue her season by performing at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City presented as part of the World Music Institute's Counterpoint Series.

Find information about all of Tanya's spring performances below, and stay tuned for exciting announcements about upcoming international engagements!
