Muohtadivggažat / The Sound of Snow (2021)

Multilingual performance based on incredible, yet true, stories from the borderland between Norway, Finland, and Russia.

Stories about escape and homeland, about a legendary bar in Boris Gleb, about sudden gaps in closed borders, about the joy of a violin, and the world’s deepest man-made hole. And above all: What a good story can mean.

The language on stage is based on the mother tongue of the actors. It varies between Norwegian, Sami, Russian, Finnish, and English. The actors also sing songs in their native tongue, as well as  joik (the traditional Sami singing)
