Vástádus eana/ The answer is land

Sunday, February 18th

Created by Elle Sofe Sara Co.
co-Produced by Mile Zero Dance and Fringe Theatre

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.

Doors at 7PM, Performance at 7:30PM. Please dress warmly and for the weather conditions. The audience will gather inside the Westbury Lobby at the Fringe Theatre Arts Barns before the performance. The performance will begin outdoors near the Fringe Theatre Arts Barns, and the audience will move indoors to the Westbury Theatre for the rest of the performance. Theatre seating is general admission.

There are no spoken words in the performance that will need translation; some yoik lyrics are in Sámi. English translations are provided in the digital playbill.

The CKUA Events Calendar is a listing of music, arts, and culture happenings for the whole province. It is a terrific resource that CKUA offers to the community, to share details about concerts, gallery openings, plays, and films.

Please note that due to the amount of listings, we publish events that focus on music, arts, or culture. While we’d love to publish all submitted items, the sheer number of events means that we sometimes have to decline submissions.
