From the performance “Eatnemen Vuelieh”-Songs from the Earth


We all have roots in one or more cultures, societies, religion a family and more. Roots keep us connected, they are strong and can grow far. They can also keep us too tight, stuck and hinder our freedom to develop ourselves.

Our ornaments define us and send signals to the world where and what we come from. This can also be a trap for being stereotyped through the majority’s definition of you and your culture and do they really see you as an individual person?
