Simone Grötte

Simone Grøtte is a contemporary choreographer from Lakselv in Northern Norway. Her work is strongly influenced by her indigenous Sami background and living and working in the arctic region, where these elements are woven into a modern expression in the theme, scenography and music. Her projects explore questions revolving around identity and belonging, with an approach focusing on human emotions and perspectives.

Grøtte has collaborated on productions with large institutions such as Norrdans, Hålogaland Teater and  Festspillene i Nord-Norge / The Arctic Arts Festival. The last of these on the critically acclaimed and popular performance FORGOTTEN. FORGOTTEN was part of the official program in Tanzmesse, Dusseldorf and Cinars, Montreal 2018.

In 2019/2020 she is commissioned for work with Hålogaland Teater in Tromsø, Norway.

“She has a unique talent for giving local history universal relevance, and a unique ability to transform trivial subjects into something exotic.”

– Jo Strømgren, Choreographer.
