Anna Heikkinen & Längtans Kapell - Satumaa-Sagolandet, at Café Dalheimer (Gothenburg)

2021-12-02 kl 18:30 - 19:30

Free

Satumaa - is the title of the most famous Finnish tango. Translated into Swedish, it means Sagolandet. Through her interpretations of the Finnish tango, Anna Heikkinen & Längtans Kapell searches for history and roots, for a Swedish-Finnish identity and a lost language.

The texts and narration are based on Anna Heikkinen's personal memories, interviews with relatives, saved letters and diary entries from the Second World War - a troubled time when Anna's father, Pekka Heikkinen, came to Sweden as an unaccompanied child from Finland. As a story told by a child to an unaccompanied minor, the performance also reflects part of our burning present and future.

With a weave of words and tones, Finnish and Swedish lyrics, accordion, saxophone and cello, the show searches for a lost Satumaa - its own Sagoland.
