We tread carefully. We trample in. It is tense. Unsettling. Vulnerable. Shameful. It is personal, no matter what.

VI ER NORDEN is the creation of a decolonizing ritual with, by and for the nordic population.

Also in the nordic countries did we trade human bodies across continents.
Also in the nordic countries did we divide families and countries in rge name of civilization.
Also in the nordic countries did we forbid language and cultural practice, and removed children for race biological research.
And we learned to handle the collective scar tissue with silence.
Daily we overhard the postcolonial traumas of Greenland and Faroe Islands, close our eyes for the disturbingly present colonization of Sápmi and reproduce the social positionings of te transatlantic slave trade.

VI ER NORDEN is the decomposition of the inherited choreographies of colonialism.
An invitation to let yourself be heard. A test of our willingness to chance.
The work travel through the different colonial and postcolonial terrains of the Nordic Countries and make itself available as a performative situation in the local debate out decolonization.

VI ER NORDEN is a nordic production between danish choreographer and dancer Ingrid Tranum Velásquez, norwegian/gambian playwright and performer Camara Lundestad Joof, Sami/Finish visual artist and experimental activist Stina Aletta Aikio, greenlandic poet Aka Niviana and faroese composer Trondur Bogason.
