For over 30 years, Pond Inlet has been the host to a thriving community theatre group. Located on the top of Baffin Island, directly across from the mountains of Bylot Island on the Northwest Passage, young and old work together to create theatre that matters. Originally founded in 1987, today’s Tununiq Arsarniit Theatre Group has recently developed an original play called Qallupilluk, featuring legends, myths and the wisdom of elders. The group develops its plays and performances by consensus, involving elders as actors and writers and always weaving Inuit language and culture in every issue it tackles.
