By Simone Grøtte. Produced by Norrdans, Sweden 2019.

- I always felt like a Sami. This despite the fact that I do not engage in reindeer husbandry, do not speak the language, cannot yoik. When I was 5 years old, my mom asked me what the best thing about being Sami is. I replied, "Eating marrow bone" 

Marrow bone are stories about who we are, where we came from, where we are headed. And what can be important to take care of.  

In the process of the performance, it has become even clearer that these questions are not necessarily about being Sami, Norwegian or Swedish, but about being human. 

Marrow bone is produced at Norrdans in Sweden. On stage we meet eight international dancers, newly composed music by Herman Rundberg and authentic sound recordings with voices from the north.

"MARROW BONE is imbued with a deep humanism. It is a convincing account of what it means to be human while celebrating both the individual and the collective"
Gregor Flakierski, Allehanda
