NAC Premiere

Please note that December 7 performance is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

An NAC Indigenous Theatre / NAC English Theatre co-production

In 1535, after experiencing an unsettling vision of the future, an Inuk woman named Hummiktuq adopts a polar bear cub. Dramatic and humorous, The Breathing Hole follows the bear as he takes the audience on an epic five century journey from a tiny Inuit community, through the tragic Franklin Expedition, and into a 21st century ravaged by climate change.

With extraordinary design featuring large-scale puppetry and an outstanding cast of 16 actors, The Breathing Hole is a masterful feat of stagecraft and imagination.

The play is presented in English and Inuktut.  

All tickets are $15 for our preview performances on November 30 & December 1.
