The New North Collective (NNC) is an ensemble of Northern Canadian performing artists from Yukon and Northwest Territories combining spoken word and jazz, with traditional storytelling and indie-pop sensibilities. “Outside” is a multimedia performance that explores the idea of north, from the land to its people, its traditions and struggles to dispel regional stereotypes of rural and remote communities. With Pat Braden (spoken word artist/bassist); Carmen Braden (composer/performer, NWT); Diyet (singer/songwriter, Kluane First Nation); Graeme Peters (guitarist/songwriter); Robert Van Lieshout percussionist (Yukon Territories) and Jan de Vroede (multi-instrumentalist/producer, Greenland).
