We have been touring in North Norway, Canada, US and Scotland.

2019 is the Year of Salmon! 



Med joik, filosofi og fortellinger fra Sápmi og nordamerikanske urfolkstradisjoner vil vi undres over laksen, både den ville og oppdrettslaksen. Hva er forbindelsen mellom laks, filosofi og tradisjonelle fortellinger?

Relasjonen mellom mennesker og laks har eksistert sidene tidenes begynnelse. Vi vil gjenskape denne relasjonen med joik, fortelling og undring.


Velkommen til Lakseeventyr!

Being Salmon, Being Human

BEING SALMON, BEING HUMAN is a unique storytelling performance from Norway combining traditional tales, original music, and contemporary philosophy.


Inspired by Martin Lee Mueller’s award-winning book by the same name, and drawing on salmon stories from Sami and First Nations peoples of Scandinavia and North America, the performance takes us on a journey through the extraordinary lives of wild salmon - sentient beings who are born in rivers, traverse the oceans, and return towards the end of their lives to their birth rivers to spawn and gift forward more life. The performance explores what becomes of this awe-inspiring creature and her journey in the face of an expansive, profit-driven feedlot industry.


Created and performed by:

  • Norwegian-British storyteller Georgiana Keable

  • Philosopher Martin Lee Mueller

  • Renowned Sami joiker and composer Torgeir Vassvik
