Festival Details - "Magnetic North"...

COVID-19 and the climate crisis are changing our way of life, offering a unique opportunity to pause, reflect and look at our world from new perspectives. Renowned theatre company Border Crossings takes this moment to celebrate the cultural diversity of the Arctic and its importance to us all in Magnetic North - a special online event from their ORIGINS Festival, presented at the British Museum in conjunction with the Arctic: culture and climate exhibition. Indigenous people who live alongside the melting ice have witnessed the climate crisis in ways that most of us could never imagine. In this special live-streamed event, ORIGINS invites you to listen to stories from extraordinary Arctic artists, poets and musicians streamed directly from the Museum’s Great Court. The whole event will be brought together with music by Indigenous Sámi band Vassvik who capture the resonance of the Arctic and place the other participants in a ritualised and trance-like soundscape. Led by Torgeir Vassvik, a keeper and renewer of the coastal music tradition and identity, the band use yoik and overtone singing with drumming, traditional instruments, and natural sounds.
