At dusk, we embrace
by Erna Ómarsdóttir and Valdimar Jóhannsson in collaboration with IDC dancers

We sat in the grass and the darkness came down. The only audible sounds were the sea and the dance of our voices. The night was filled with music.

A midwinter night’s dream where new music by Sigur Rós is met with the high pitched and breathy extreme physicality of Iceland Dance Company. Dancing, screaming and fighting to free themselves from the burdens of the past and embracing the endless night.

Dancers: Aðalheiður Halldórsdóttir, Elín Signý Weywadt, Ernesto Camilo Aldazabal Valdes, Hannes Þór Egilsson, Halla Þórðardóttir, Inga Maren Rúnarsdóttir, Sigurður Andrean Sigurgeirsson & Þyri Huld Árnadóttir

The Great Gathering
by Ásrún Magnúsdóttir and Alexander Roberts in collaboration with IDC dancers

A large group of adults and children dance together with buzz in the ears, stereo of sound and steamy fog. Splashing in puddles with bleeding noses, they live in another world where they are never invisible. Spinning round and round – holding hands – the whole world a blur.

Dancers: Elín Signý Weywadt, Ernesto Camilo Aldazabal Valdes, Halla Þórðardóttir, Hannes Þór Egilsson, Inga Maren Rúnarsdóttir, Sigurður Andrean Sigurgeirsson & Þyri Huld Árnadóttir

Children: Carmen Lea Einarsdóttir, Dagmar Edda Guðnadóttir, Jökull Nói Ívarsson, Kolbeinn Einarsson, Marínó Máni Mabazza, Rafn Winther Ísaksson, Sigríður V. Gunnarsdóttir, Una Yamamoto Barkardóttir, Ylfa Aino Eldon Aradóttir & Þóra Dís Hrólfsdóttir

The festival Norður og Niður will take place 26.-31. desember.
