Oaraya was created in 2005, when Guillaume Saladin moved to Igloolik on a permanent basis. Oraya, meaning ‘I can’t wait’ in Inuktitut is a show blending traditional Inuit games and contemporary circus techniques including the first ever Inuit contortionist and 3-man high figure. The show was premiered by an Inuit-only cast in 2006 at the Baffin Regional Youth Committee.
