Pieces of Faroese culture - An interplay of light and darkness in an intriguing lighting design
For those of you visiting the Faroe Islands during the
solar eclipse, we invite you to experience our rich culture by participating in
a journey that will take you through some of our most important songs, poems,
folklore and dances. Just like during the eclipse itself, the emphasis of our
cultural journey is on darkness and light: over the course of the evening, we
will cover themes ranging from the grave and sombre to the joyful and
No person can survive on culture alone, and we therefore
also invite you to sample some Faroese delicacies, including locally brewed
beer. Faroese food currently enjoys significant international praise and
interest due to its purity and simplicity. For the purposes of the Cultural
Evening, the emphasis will be on the traditional.
The final part of the evening is interactive as it gives
you an opportunity to participate in our traditional chain dance.
Notwithstanding its ancient origins, the Faroese chain dance is very much a
tradition that is alive and well. The only instruments are the voices of the
participants, accompanied by the rhythmical stamping of feet. The dance is
extremely social and no one is excluded. If you wish, you can join in.
