Camilla Therese Karlsen belongs to the Sea Sami tribe of Northern Norway. Her Great Grandfather was a sami storyteller, and this project is based on a few legends he told, that were subsecuently written down by Just Qvigstad during the period 1929-1932. Together with Sami musician Emil Karlsen, and Danish juggler, acrobat and mover Zietra Møller, Camilla aims to make some of these legends come alive in this piece. Stories of meetings between gods, spirits, the dead and the living, and about the energy that lingers when we die.
Why are we so afraid of death?
Who are the ghosts of todays society?
Come and experience traditional Sami joik mixed with modern music, stories told in traditional form and poetry, all mixed with dancing bodies and moving objects.
