Uaajeerneq (performance)

Uaajeerneq is an ancient tradition practiced in secret in Greenland after Christian colonization. Connie Kristoffersen has reworked her own Uaajeerneq in which she seems to transform into a being between worlds. It is not until the performer has placed Oqummiaq,a bone or wood piece, in her mouth that boundaries fall apart. Emotions and multiple bodies surface in the play with life: fright, fun and seduction or sexual drive. Expect some confusion. Even the performer becomes confused about who she is and what will arise.
