Basically everything is a work in progress until it’s finished, and with art it’s often as in life: it’s the journey/process that’s the most interesting part. Here are some of the inspiring and powerful WIPs in Sápmi as we live and breathe October 2019.

 

work in progress: máttáráhkuide – ánna-katri helander

 

Ánna-Katri Helander, Sápmis only female hiphop dancer has really made her artistic imprint on Sápmi lately. In 2018 she was appointed Riddu Riđđu’s young artist of the year, and premiered her first multimedial danceproduction áindas. At KulturSápmi she will reveal several aspects of her new project “Máttaráhkuide”.

 

Dan maid árbin, das ii čuvvon dánsun, illá lihkastagatge. Juogasajis boatkanii oktavuohta, oktavuohta mii áibbaša ruovttoluotta. Juohke lihkastat man ealáskahttán, dat ealáskahttá, ilu. Gullevašvuođa. Oktavuođaid. Juohke lihkastat ealáskahttá mu.

Dánsun lea álo leamaš lagamus mu váimmu ja leage vuođđun mu dáiddalaš prošeavttaide. Lean dál bargame prošeavttain mas buokčalan čiekŋalebbui luohtái gávdnandihte min lihkastagaid. Lihkastagaid maid sáhtašin dálá dánsun vugiiguin ovttastit. Sámi áidna nisson hiphop dánsárin dovddan maid dárbbu dan seammás luohtedajahusaid ja čállosiit bokte ollet lagabui vástádusaide mu feministtalaš gažaldagaide. Mii govvida feminisma min kultuvrras? Sáhttit go dan dovdat luđiin? Mii lea feminisma leamaš min vuorrasit nissoniidda? Vuoi lea go mis oba leamaš ge dárbu jurddašit nu, lea go feminisma oarjemáilmmi buvtta?

Máttaráhku nanu luondduin, ja máttaráhká vuoiŋŋain, geahččalan ohcat dekoloniserema feminismii ja iežan lihkastagaide. Geahččalan árbbi boatkaneami dikšut. Máhcahit oktavuođa ja máttaráhkaid gudnin dánsut.
