NACC recognizes the traditional territory of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis across the six regions of the NWT.

BENCHED is a brutally honest dance about life’s big and very small questions. About settling down. About daring to sit in opposition, about sitting cross-legged, about being sat, put off or benched. About taking, creating, and giving space, and preferably remembering to do so before falling on your ass where the bench ends.


“Connections” brings Fireweed Children’s Chorus and Aurora Chorealis on stage together with Òran (from Edmonton’s Korora Choirs) and Munya Mataruse. We sing in our separate formations, and we sing together about the many and various ways people are connected, and sometimes disconnected. We cover a lot of musical territory in this 2 hour show (including an intermission). Our music is old, and new, funky and fundamental, serious and silly. We hope you’ll connect with us by attending!

When most people hear the word "clown," they think of children's birthday parties, the circus, big noses, and floppy shoes. This is not the clown we’re talking about or searching for. 

Sabine Choucair uses clowning techniques to help people discover the inner clown waiting to be discovered in each of us. Her workshops help participants focus on personal rebuilding, explore humour and laughter, learning to let go and to say yes in a comfortable, nonjudgmental atmosphere.

The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre is presenting this survey as a way of understanding the interests that may or may not exist across the NWT in the exploration of this art form.

On April 6th, we had the pleasure of hosting Nyata-Nyata in Yellowknife. This impeccable group from Montreal blew us all always with their contemporary African dance piece, Mozongi.

Thank you for joining us in the North, and giving us the space to ponder the quality of time with you.

Pour yourself a cup of ambition & join Ptarmigan Ptheatrics for Dolly Parton’s smash hit musical, 9 to 5!

Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy - giving their boss the boot!
