Vallpiga – shepherdess,
Vallpiga is an experimental, multiartistic performance, which combines Nordic archaic singing tradition and live drawing. Themes of loneliness, contact and human voice are approached in dialogue of two sisters and their different forms of expression.
The 50 minutes performances sound material is based on the Swedish shepherd tradition, songs that were sang at the forests, often by young shepherd girls (in Swedish “vallpiga”).
After the opening night in 2011 has Vallpiga has been performed in Finland, Sweden, France and Estonia in festivals, concert houses and museums.
