“I described that huge tidal wave as the rapids of life that I had to descend. I realised how little I knew about the strength of the human body.” Outi Tarkiainen’s new work is about the moment experienced by women giving birth. Katarina Barruk is the only artist in the world who performs and records in the Ume Sámi language. In this concert, she yoiks and sings bridges from one song to another.
