The project Guoddi represents a unique art performance as well as visual art where dance and music are sculpted through the expression of avant-garde duodji. These elements, deeply rooted in the Sami craft tradition, move towards highly experimental forms of expression. "Guoddi", a word from the Northern Sami language that means someone who carries, in this context becomes a metaphor for the role of the dancers. They wear body parts that symbolize pride and strength, but also the weight and burden that carrying an indigenous culture can entail.

Guoddi is thus a central element in this performance, a bearer of cultural identity and history. Through a creative collaboration between designer and duojár Ann-Sofie Kallok, dancers Ánna-Katri Helander and Sebastian Björkman and composer Anthoni Hætta, a new and exciting artistic landscape is explored, where the body elements not only influence, but determine the direction of the other art forms. The composer and dancers draw inspiration from the expression, movement and temperament of the elements.

In the final product, music and dance are united in a way that elevates the avant-garde elements into a powerful, challenging and multidimensional performance. This performance is not just a dance, but a symbiosis of art forms that together create a unique and memorable experience.

Ann-Sofie Kallok avant-garde duodji can be seen in the Guoddi performance and as a part of the Dáiddadállu 10 jagi exhibition.

Guoddi WIP februar 356387

In "Suoidnekaboom", reindeer stomachs and senna grass meet with performing arts and living bodies. The work explores the physical materials in relation to materials' inherent potential, cultural use and context. It is a both performance and several visual art works where the visual art lives in dialogue with living bodies, movement, while at the same time they can stand alone. 

Following an invitation to create new works for Dáiddadállu's 10th anniversary, Maret Anne Sara has invited stage artists Anitta Katriina Suikkari and Anja Saiva Bongo Bjørnstad, Alexandra Wingate and Li Taiga to interact and interpret some of the physical materials and works Sara has worked with recent years, with a particular thematic context for "Pile o´Sápmi" and the series of works for the Venice Biennale in 2022. "Suoidnekaboom" is a work where individual artistry and different artistic branches, experiences and expertise, meet in free space. The group has worked closely for over 2 years, both in physical workshops and conversations, to understand what the visual art and materials mean in relation to the performing arts and for us in a collective sense.

From this, a performance art piece has emerged that examines existential durability under pressure. How does prolonged pressure affect the complex inner landscape, in relation to oneself and others? How does the inner life live in sync or out of sync with the external life, and what does this do to people, relationships and society? The work focuses on important discussions related to the work with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the wake of the harsh pre-Norwegian treatment of the Sámi, and the ongoing mechanisms of this which are still strongly felt in Sápmi today. Where small societies are often based on dependency relationships in both material and immaterial contexts, at the same time that immaterial values and relationships are put in competition with individual material survival.
Máret Ánne Sara´s art works can be seen in the performance and as a part of the Dáiddadállu 10 jagi exhibition.

Kopi av Lávre 2foto HILDÁLÄNSMAN fri bruk

Lávre is a young Sami artist and musician from Kautokeino. His musical expression is strongly rooted in the Sami joike tradition, but at the same time exploratory and searching for new impulses in Sami music. With the guitar and effects pedals, an atmospheric but down-to-earth soundscape is created, and the audience is invited to a journey through things that are often a bit hidden away under the surface, both for oneself and in Sami culture. The music is an exciting combination of joik and song, intuitive guitar playing and lyrics that are based on the rich metaphorical lyrics found in old joiks.

Lávre stretches across genres and generations, and balances tradition with innovation in his debut album "Vuložat", which roughly translates to "Those or what lives under".

"Vuložat" is a collection of songs with both traditional joik and contemporary joik. The album is the result of many years of inner work, and reflects the beginning of a deep dive into Lávre's own personal mythology and the historical origins of the Sami people.
