Throwing Voices: Linnéa Axelsson, Taqralik Partridge, Kate Young & Pippa Murphy

Throwing Voices is a unique collaborative project looking at how local language, culture and tradition can resonate across linguistic divides. Using selected objects and words, Sami writer Linnéa Axelsson and Inuit poet and throat singer Taqralik Partridge share their experiences in a special event featuring music, verse and discussion. The authors have worked with leading folk musician Kate Young and live electronics with Pippa Murphy to create a boundary-crossing performance exploring the similarities and differences between Sami and Inuit cultures. Supported by the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.

Throwing Voices was also performed at the Bergen Lit Fest, Norway
