  • Over Katja & Birit Haarla Starting from Staring

    How to meet without any intention? Allowing the kinship to be enough, as its own, is a primary Sámi value. This is the indigenous ground for the fight against the exploitation of natural resources and of culture.  What if you wouldn’t leave any trace of human activity behind, any material of your own?  These two are starting from staring. A state of being that is nothingness, intense nothingness. Ephemeral, like it is to be as a human being.  A start without talking. Locking the eyes, dragging the gaze along. Reaching the other one. Creating suspense - or is that suspicion? Waiting for something to move. Reacting, intimidating, discovering playfulness. Somehow important, somehow tensed. Leaving. Landing somewhere else. What is it? A glimpse of the past? A concentration of excitement? A soft fight? A soft fight. duration: 60 min  BIO ?iske Jovsset Biret Hánsa Outi Biret (Birit Haarla) and ?iske Jovsset Biret Hánsa Outi Gáddjá (Katja Haarla) are both dancers and performers coming from Dalvadas, Ohcejohka, the Finnish side of Sápmi.
