Elle Sofe Sara is described as one of the most interesting and important choreographers in her generation in Norway. 

Sara’s work expands upon seemingly mundane, often overlooked areas of Sámi physicality— unspoken rituals that have escaped the vice grip of colonialism. In this Sara uncovers a space in which the past and the present coincide.

While her choreography is known for its playful approach, she also delves into taboo subjects such as trauma, abuse, and suicide. As an Indigenous artist, Sara seeks to create work that resonates as strongly for her community as it does for the art world. 

Sara´s critically acclaimed choreographic works tour extensively nationally and internationally. In addition to working as a choreographer, she has also made several award-winning short films and documentaries. Sara also co-founded Daíddadállu, a Sámi indigenous contemporary art collective.

She grew up and lives in Guovdageaidnu, Sápmi / Finnmark. And when she is not working with choreography or film, or traveling for work, Sara can be found marking reindeer calves with her children or reading animal tracks in the snow.
