Performance synopsis

‘Nomadic Woman’ is an interdisciplinary performance project which tackles the issues of migration, resettlement and discrimination. The performance is based on the story of Louise Fontaine, an Inuit Greenlandic woman who currently lives in Norway – but as a child, together with thousands of other children, was deported to Denmark. ‘Nomadic Woman’ is also a symbolic space for everyone looking for their lost identity.
