West End Cultural Centre: Tanya Tagaq, January 22

The West End Cultural Centre presents:
Tanya Tagaq

Tuesday, January 22nd 2019 - Tickets available Thursday, November 29th @12pm

Tanya Tagaq is an improvisational singer, avant-garde composer and bestselling novelist. A member of the Order of Canada, Polaris Music Prize and JUNO Award winner, Giller Prize Long Listed author and recipient of multiple honourary doctorates, Tagaq is one of the country's most original and celebrated artists.

Tagaq's improvisational approach lends itself to collaboration across genres and forms. Her work includes numerous guest vocal appearances (Buffy Sainte-Marie, Weaves, A Tribe Called Red, Fucked Up), original avant-garde classical compositions (Kronos Quartet, The Toronto Symphony Orchestra), commissions (National Maritime Museum in London, UK) and more.

In its many forms, from novel Split Tooth to most recent album Retribution, Tanya Tagaq's art challenges static ideas of genre and culture, and contends with themes of environmentalism, human rights and post-colonial issues.

Tagaq will bring these worlds together on stage with a program that includes a reading from Split Tooth, followed by a musical performance with full band.
