Giron Sámi Teáhter | CO2lonialNATION
CO2lonialNATION is a fictional commission for truth and reconciliation, which deals with the relations between the four nations Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia and the Sami and the relations between Samis. A testimony from one of the richest and safest areas of the world.
CO2lonialNATION is a testimony of severed ties, broken responsibilities, shattered alliances, maimed minds, and how a broken man breaks down another, generation after generation. CO2lonialNATION channels the voices of the Sápmi that have not previously been heard, voices that are like a white spot within the media. CO2lonialNATION uses methods from documentary theater and raises more questions than it answers.
