once upon a time
About Akti Lij
Akti lij - "once upon a time", is a magical performance that takes children into the Sami fairytale world. Through dance and movement, we let the audience travel from place to place among beings and creatures from the world of stories. Sami storytelling tradition is something that has accompanied the Sami in history and carried with them the tales of today's children.
We now want to carry on this tradition and cultural heritage through an interactive dance performance. The performance is suitable both as a public and for schools; where we include educational material to give teachers the opportunity to work with children in the theme Sápmi also in other school subjects.
A warm welcome to a performance that is suitable for both Sami and non-Sami children, a great way to introduce today's society to Sápmi and a way for the children in and from Sápmi to take it from their own history and cultural heritage through dance.
