Now Bullá has come back from the mountains! Come sing and dance with us again and listen to áhttje tell stories.
Bullá – Mu buoremus boazu / Mov bööremes bovtse / Min bästa ren was performed in the spring of 2015 with a fully booked tour schedule and in several language versions. In the fall of 2016 it comes back with new actors, performed in Lule Sami with Northern Sami elements.
This is a real story about Nils-Johan, the reindeer Bullá, the dog Jojo and their important friendship, which is made stronger by the love of life in the reindeer woods. You as an audience, children and adults both, will experience the story by singing, dancing and playing around on the stage, which portrays in different ways the settings and situations in these friends’ lives. The performance is loosely based on the children’s book Sagan om Buolla written by Anne Pavval, Jokkmokk.
“The children thought that the show was very good. Afterwards they talked a lot about the crazy reindeer and the dog. They liked that they had the chance to participate so much.”
“Good! Cool! The best!”
“Hey! We in the preparatory class thought that the show was perfect! It was funny, the kids got involved and got a small glimpse of Sami life! Simply great, think the teacher and the students.” Vittangi school.”
“We want to go to a theater like this again!”
“We thought that the whole show was super good, everything was great. You did an incredibly good job. You captured everyone, with singing, dancing and fellowship. It was good that you used different languages (Sami and Swedish), these are languages that exist in our surroundings. We are all very pleased with this theater play and grateful that you came to us in Svappavaara. You are welcome to come back!”
