Northern Scene

Ottawa / Gatineau
APRIL 25 - MAY 4, 2013

From April 25 to May 4, 2013, Canada’s National Arts Centre will present Northern Scene, the sixth in a series of national Scene festivals celebrating and showcasing our country’s finest established and emerging artists.

Northern Scene will feature more than 250 artists from Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut to take over the nation’s capital. Musicians, actors, dancers, writers, visual and media artists, filmmakers, storytellers, and chefs will bring their unique talents to audiences throughout the region – a virtual Northern invasion!

Northern Scene will present a vast living portrait of this unique region – combining traditional and contemporary, shaking stereotypes and celebrating new voices. Don’t miss it!
