ÆVI | [ Íd ] Íslenski dansflokkurinn

ÆVI (LIFETIME) 


Our first breath, when we are brand new in this world, until our last. Birth, growth, curiosity, friendship, happiness, family, experience, hope, dissapointment, death.

That is our lifetime. We gather layers, experience, learn to decide, be in charge, win and loose, feel grief or joy. We wish it could last forever, although sometimes it is cut short.

The piece is based on the telvevision series “Ævi” that Sigríður Halldórsdóttir produced in collaboration with RÚV.

Inga Maren is the dancer and choreographer working in collaboration with Júlíanna Lára Steingrímsdóttir, costume and set designer. Inga Maren and Júlíanna work closely togeather to deliver outcome that is aesthetically intriguing and visually enticing. The music is in the hands of BAFTA-award winning composer Ólafur Arnalds.
