Norway’s KultNett brings together some of the foremost folk musicians and storytellers from beyond the Arctic Circle.
Examining the history of the peoples of northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Sápmi, the land of the Sámi people KultNett presents a fast and furious fiddle and the traditional ‘joik’ of the Sámi. Storytelling is interwoven and creates a performance that explores as well as interrogates the dynamics of cultural and ethnic hegemony in the nordic region of Europe.
Adapted especially for Marchland, and illustrated by a multi-media presentation, this is a truly immersive experience. A rare insight into a rich and vibrant borderland culture from the Northernmost reaches of Europe.
