Master Class based on movement material from the performance BIRGET; ways to deal, ways to heal by choreographer Elle Sofe Sara and artist Joar Nango.

The Master Class is given in conjunction with Norway's National Company for Contemporary Dance Carte Blanche visiting Elverket/Dansenshus with their latest work "BIRGET; Ways to deal, ways to heal"
Together with dancer Dawid Maciej Lorenc, the participating dancers get an insight into the structure and creation of the work.

“BIRGET; Ways to deal, ways to heal” is a response to the Norwegian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which in June 2023 will submit proposals to reconcile the Sami and Norwegian people. 

Birget is a Sami expression that describes a state of mastering or surviving in a changing environment. Driven by birget, Sara, Nango, and Carte Blanche invite the audience to overcome the fear of touching a heavy and challenging topic with a frisky performance that questions social and political boundaries, limitations, and today’s climate of reconciliation.
