Event Type

A powerful performance focused on community and tales of resistance. Norway’s Indigenous Sámi people are at the heart of the work by Elle Sofe Sara.

Community and kinship between people, with nature and with the earth we all share, are the main themes of Vástádus eana/ The answer is land. The choreography is inspired by demonstrations, Sámi spiritual practices and formation dance, and features Sámi yoiking (singing).

Written specially for the performance by composer and professor of yoik (Sámi traditional songs), Frode Fjellheim, the polyphonic yoik works as a supportive pillar throughout the work. Fjellheim showcases the breadth of yoik and a new way of working with polyphonic yoik.
