Dania, 21, grew up in a Christian congregation on the Faroe Islands. She recently moved to Tórshavn, where she became romantically involved with hip-hop artist and poet Trygvi, aka Silver Boy. He is from a secular family and writes dark lyrics. Fascinated by Trygvi’s courage to write brutally honest lyrics about being human, Dania starts writing more personal texts that amount to a collection of poems, “Skál”, critical of the double life she and other young people are forced to live in order to fit within the strict Christian framework.
