Northern Treasures: Tales Around the Sami Drum
(Wed 25 Oct: 6pm)
Sami culture is a collective treasure in story, song and music. In this performance, Sami storyteller Stina Fagertun and musician Øistein Hanssen invite us on a journey through Sami Mythology from the starry sky to the magic mountains. Follow the stories of the Sacred Arctic Sami drum and share the deep roots of this northern lifestyle, the threats it faces, and its ongoing struggle to survive and adapt.
Storytelling is a store of collective memories, experiences and values. Relax, and delve into those Collective Treasures in the genial company of the festival’s storytellers, as they celebrate our common humanity.
Join us as we explore, question and celebrate the Right To Be Human. This year, on the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we consider the many challenges we face, from human health and wellbeing to the health and future of our planet. However, there is also a worldwide movement to meet these challenges, and to exist imaginatively, fairly and in community with the whole diversity of life. Storytelling has embraced these values from the dawn of culture and stories today can help us be more connected to the world around us, as well as our rights, showing us how to be more alive and creative as humans.
