Follow three generations of Sami women in this epic, prize-winning drama.
Ædnan is a story of women from three generations and the way they lived their lives from the early 20th century until now. It is a story of land rights that were refused. Of mines and regulated rivers that cut through their lives. Of a language leaving the humans. It is a story of those looking for their roots. And those who move towards ‘Swedishness’. Piece by piece, generation by generation, the emotional landscape of this large-scale drama grows.
The rich cast of characters is depicted on stage by six actors. It is a performance for all senses, where language, choreography and music enhance the experience.
The performance is based on Linnea Axelsson's successful book, Ædnan, which was awarded the 2018 August Strindberg prize.
Malin Stenberg is the director, known among other things for the Disguised God at Folkoperan 2018.
