New Conversation Series Videos Posted! Meet Reneltta Arluk!

27 May

Remember the Conversation Series we’ve been creating this year, where MIA interviews Inuit artists  about their work? Well, after a long delay we are back with our latest installment: meet Reneltta Arluk, an actor and playwright!

Interviewing Reneltta

I should explain why these videos are so delayed: I interviewed Reneltta back in early February – right after I interviewed Jaco Ishulutaq, actually – but then we ran into technical difficulties. We had to start the interview a few different times because the recording software I was using was not in fact recording. And then after our interview, the video did not want to load. But now, we’ve got it working and I could not be happier to share it with you.

In part one, Reneltta discusses how she began acting, her experiences acting in Human Cargo’s NIGHT and her one-woman show TUMIT:

In part two, Reneltta talks more about TUMIT, conceptions of Aboriginal theatre and what’s up next for her:

She has lots of exciting projects happening now, so you should follow her on Akpik Theatre’s Facebook page or on Twitter. And stay tuned, we will be announcing our next chat in the next few days!
