Events for this project:
Sat Aug 30 - Sun Nov 23 2014
Cloud Shadow is an art project aiming to strengthen foreign-born women and promote sisterhood across ethnic boundaries.
The project will lead to a collective performance where the poetry of Tomas Tranströmer is a unifying theme. His poems have been translated into many languages and the participants can read them in their own language and in Swedish.
The participants get to know each other by reading together, interpreting the poems, discussing and talking about memories and images from their own countries. The work will lead to a final performance show and a party carried out in 2014. Besides working on the poems, the women also sew their performance costumes.
Cloud Shadow is driven by Studiefrämjandet in the Umeå region and is a part of NorrlandsOperan’s project River Stories. Other partners are the National Arts Council and the County Library of Västerbotten.
