The Centre for All Canadians

The Confederation Centre Young Company presents Aqsarniit

Confederation Centre Young Company’s production will explore the many themes and issues that make up Canada today. Entitled Aqsarniit (“awe-saw-nee” ), the Inuktitut word used to describe the northern lights, the 2018 Confederation Centre Young Company will bring to audiences a high-energy, musical performance re-examining the stories of Canada’s past and discovering what stories we hope to be told in the future.

The Confederation Centre Young Company is one of our country’s leading performance-based training programs. With a strong focus on all three performance disciplines, 13 young artists from across Canada gather to share their life experiences and share the stories that define us as Canadians. This upbeat musical weaves music and dance through stories about our collective Canadian identity.
