Dance artist Elle Sofe Sara has visited the homes of about ten Samis people of the older generation. They have given her vivid descriptions of movements that have taken place in living rooms and homes, by the fire, in weddings, and in spiritual settings.
The duet is carefully composed of a humble study of movements, where a handful of movements have become cornerstones in the meeting between two dancers. Jorggáhallan is a meeting between old and new movements, personal interpretations, a journey in time and space, and an invitation to sense an experience that vibrates in the tension between a cup of coffee and rousing dance.
