«Joik as an act of Resistance»

«The program’s – sometimes strictly artistic, sometimes focused on discussions – engaged the audience in a non-artistic theme, showing how they treat art to talk about identity, here about the Sámi culture. Festivals do this very shallowly, Borealis decided to go deeper. This reflection on locality, identity, and how to fight for it was my best lesson for this year’s edition.»
