Loco and Kicks return for Reykjavik Arts Festival 2018.
Iceland Dance Company premieres a brand-new performance for the whole family: Loco and Kicks: Electric Boogaloo by Hannes Þór Egilsson and Þyri Huld Árnadóttir. Directed by Pétur Ármannsson, with costumes and set designed by Sigríður Sunna Reynisdóttir.
The piece is an independent sequel to the successful Loco and Kicks throw a birthday party, which received raving reviews and was nominated as ‘children’s performance of the year’ and ‘choreography of the year’ at the Iceland Performing Arts Awards (Gríman) in 2016.
In the aftermath of the most exciting birthday party ever, Loco and Kick’s house is an absolute mess. The friends are still elated after their fantastic journey fuelled by their imagination and are ready to take on their next superhero task: to clean up in style. Then an unexpected electric guest shows up. Who is he? What powers does he possess? What can he teach Loco and Kicks about the world of electricity?
