The performance revives traditional storytelling aided by string figures. The narrative derives from the rich Inuit mythology and leads the spectator all the way from the creation of the world to modern times. Throughout the ages humanity’s coexistence with nature is monitored by the Kalupalik, mythological beings with green skin and sharp claws, half human, half fish. In our story the Kalupalik act as nature’s guardians, preserving the balance between nature and humans. They personify the threat posed by destroying this fragile balance. Through this ancient fairy-tale the performance implores the spectators to realise the danger that climate change presents to us and consider how they can prevent it from happening.
