Performance, 90 min.
2021


Vástádus eana- The answer is land is a performance that thought dance and yoik reflects on the power of standing together and the awareness for the common ground and nature we stand on.

 

In vástádus eana- the answer is land dance and yoik (traditional Sámi song) are equally important, and the audience is part of the performance. The audience and performers form a big mass.

“My thought is to bring people the bodily experience of being together, part of a mass, standing together. The powerful experience of being together with other people connected to traditional song and nature through a choreographed experience that starts outside and ends up in a theatre”, says artistic director Elle Sofe Sara.

This performance is under development and will premiere June 19 at the Artctic Arts festival in Harstad, Norway.
