AION | [ Íd ] Íslenski dansflokkurinn

A new creation by Erna Ómarsdóttir and Anna Thorvaldsdóttir
World premiere at Point music festival in Gothenburg. AION is inspired by an abstract notion of time and the journey between dimensions.
In AION, Erna Ómarsdóttir choreographer and Anna Thorvaldsdottir composer invite the audience on an otherworldly voyage where music and movement merge in a unique way.
