Biegga savkala duoddara duohken lea soames- The wind whisphers there is someone behind the tundra

Biegga savkala duoddara duohken lea soames
The wind whipshers there is someone behind the tundra

 

The poem Biegga savkala duoddarid duohken lea soames by award winning Sami poet Synnove Persen reveals a belief in the powers of nature and a connection to their Sami ancestors. The choreography in this dance-on-film symbolizes their evolution as they dance through time and space enjoying the wonders of the sky, passing objects and people that connect them to their Sami ancestors.
