The Legend of Kiviuq tells the story of young Kiviuq who is blown off course by a storm while out in his kayak. Finding himself in a strange land, he encounters a magical “Goose-woman,” and they fall in love and have two children. When his family leaves him to fly south, Kiviuq sets out on a magnificent adventure to find them, meeting the “Bee-woman” and the “Father of fish” on his journey.
MPT’s The Legend of Kiviuq has received rave reviews throughout Canada and around the world, and returns after a 25-year hiatus with a special run at the WAG.
