Faroese #Metoo stories
In the fall of 2017 a female actress called upon all women in the filmindustry to put the hashtag #Metoo in their walls on social medias. Women – and men – of all ages, who somehow had their boundaries being stepped on, sexually, spiritually, physically etc., put #Metoo on their wall. Also in the Faroe Islands several women answered with #Metoo. A scree began to roll cautiously and then more relentlessly. This reading is just a small collection of the many stories that were sent anonymously to the homepage metooforoyar.fo, and released in spring 2018
read by faroese actors: Marita Dalsgaard, Gunnvá Zachariasen and others.
For the love of The Faroe Islands
Creativity breeds creativity, but beneath any form of creativity is a voice that wants to be heard. Something growing inside you evolves and translates into a design. And when that design speaks to your audience and touches their souls, the circle is complete. But who and what are the Faroe Islands that Shisa Brand has devoted their heart to? And how does the love translate into garments and others sought after items?
orBIT : A play by Ria Tórgarð
A band meets up. They are going to rehearse. 6 people, all with their personal qualities, dreams and wishes. Their identities and desires. But is it music that is the motivation for them to make a band? Or is it something else? The common feeling and the love for music is set aside to make room for personal interests and becomes an obstacle to the symbiosis that is essential for creativity. This is an absurd play, a tragic comedy, about people, who cannot find the common tune, and do not have the common sense needed to create the music together. The play is energetic, with acting, music, song, dance and big, violent emotions. This Theater Group is founded by MáF, who has invited them to take part in an International Theater Festival in Litava this summer. The play is specially built to an international audience, so is not necessary to understand the dialog, since the play is physical and reflects upon common, basic human emotions.
KONNI KASS has been a regular part of the G! lineup for a few years, and is currently in the studio working on their sophomore album, This year we invite them, in the form of a speical 2 piece performance they have been touring whilst work on the second album develops. The show is an electronic mix of soulful pop, with saxophone solos and pop melodies combining songs from the first album HAPHE with new material creating a new minimalistic and electronic sound. KONNI KASS is also playing at this year’s ROSKILDE FESTIVAL in Denmark, and these two shows will be the only chance to hear this fantastic Faroese act this year.
