Friday Oct 10 2014 17:00 - 18:00
Season opening


Darkness approaches. The temperatures are falling and the earth is getting ready for a long rest after the harvest. But waiting for the next explosion of life is more than just silence. Beneath the surface there is the energy that is Tjakttja – the Season of Desire.

Welcome the autumn with an evening to remember!

Start the evening at Guitars
Drop by Guitars for a bite or drinks before the opening ceremony begins, 17:00 in the courtyard between Guitars and the Ballet Academy.

17:00 Season inauguration at the courtyard between Guitars and Balettakademien
The season inauguration offers a unique fashion show by Sami designers Lena Viltok and Anna-Stina Svakko, and a Ballet Academy dance performance that conveys a sense of autumn, the northern room and Sami tradition. Sami artist Sara Ajnnak will create the soundtrack to the experience by performing live.

Umeå Jazz Festival offers a preview with the bassist Rickard N Jokela and after that homecoming queen Jennie Abrahamson will perform live. Master of ceremonies is Lina Hognert, actor at Profilteatern. Free entry.
