Giron Sámi Teáhter is in constant motion. With two to three own productions per year, various projects and collaborations with other theaters and actors, we have a whole lot of stories to tell.
Giron Sámi Teáhter is now fully active in the initiated cooperation with the Sámi Parliament in order to achieve the status of Sami national stage in Sweden, and for this reason our development work is looking for special funding. This means that the dialogue with members and donors regarding the theater’s requirements, organization, financing and premises will be intensified and new partnerships will be created.
“This is a work that requires meticulous precision in order to be presented, in the near future, to all the involved decision makers. This long-awaited collaboration with the Sami Parliament will probably characterize the theater for many years to come. There are many questions that have to be analyzed before the national stage can get its final face. We are, after all, a people that was confined behind many land borders. A people with particular needs for survival.”
Åsa Simma, Head of the Theater
