We’re very happy to announce that choreographer and director Elle Sofe Sara is now associated to Nordberg Movement! The first steps of this collaboration concerns the production Vástádus eana – The Answer Is Land.
Vástádus eana – The Answer is Land is a performance that through dance and yoik reflecs on the power of standing together and the awareness of the common ground and nature that we are standing 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 together.
– My thought is to bring to people the bodily experience of being together, part of a mass, standing together. The powerful experience of standing together with other people, connected to traditional song and nature, through a choreographed experience that starts outside and ends up inside a theatre, artistic director Elle Sofe Sara says.
The performance will premiere June 19th 2021 at the Artistic Arts festival in Harstad, Norway.
