ARTIST TALK: “Birget; a portrait of a process” – 1st of june

A conversation between choreographer Elle Sofe Sara, documentarist Andreas Leonardsen Daugstad & artistic director Annabelle Bonnèry.

How is birget, a Sami expression for coping with what you have, translated and reflected in an artistic process? How does a philosophy of living and surviving turn into a strategy for creating performing arts? 

In the work with the performance BIRGET; ways to deal, ways to heal, artists Elle Sofe Sara and Joar Nango, and dancers from Carte Blanche have been followed by a film team led by the Sami documentary filmmaker Andreas Daugstad Leonardsen. They travelled with Carte Blanche from Kautokeino/Guovdageaidnu to Oslo and on to Bergen, observing the making of the performance. The film was scheduled to premiere this evening, but the film will become available later this year.
