MARGBEIN revolves around stories about who we are, where we come from, where we are headed. And what can be important to take care of.
In the process of making the performance, it has become even clearer that these questions are not necessarily about being Sami, Norwegian or Swedish, but about being human.
MARGBEIN is produced at Norrdans in Sweden. On stage we meet eight international dancers, newly composed music by Herman Rundberg and authentic soundtracks with voices from the north.
Simone Grøtte is a contemporary choreographer from Lakselv in Northern Norway. Her work is strongly influenced by her indigenous Sami background and living and working in the arctic region, where these elements are woven into a modern expression in the theme, scenography and music.
Her projects explore questions revolving around identity and belonging, with an approach focusing on human emotions and perspectives.
