Season 2014 – 2015 | [ Íd ] Íslenski dansflokkurinn

Season 2014 – 2015

Season 2014 – 2015

Iceland Dance Company will premiere three powerful performances at Reykjavik City Theatre, where the company will perform pieces by both world renowned choreographers, as well as young and up-and-coming choreographers.

EMOTIONAL premiere October 25th

Meadow by Brian Gerke

Inspired by his childhood home, the award winning dancer Brian creates a playful and lush dance piece that highlights the technical skills of the dancers.

EMO1994 by Ole Martin Meland

A raw, explosive and physical trip by the young and asspiring choreographer Ole Martin Meland. It circles around fundamental matters connected to basal existence, young urgency, and re-organization of monumental clichés of life. LOVE, HATE, DEATH.

Taugar premiere February 6th

HULA by Saga Sigurðardóttir to original music by Hallvarður Ásgeirsson

Reaching unity with eternity through dance with enthusiasm, chaos, insanity, but first and foremost love.

Saga Sigurðardóttir was awarded the Icelandic Theatre awards in 2009 for her piece Humanimal and is quickly becoming one of Iceland’s best known choreographers.

1-2-1 Test (working title) by Karol Tyminski

A laboratory where the movements of the body are objectified and body layers are exposed. What lurks beneath the surface?

Karol Tyminski is a polish dancer and choreographer and a powerful representative of a growing generation of young artists. His piece Beep has received international recognition and was considered one of the most radical and exciting piece ever performed at Impuls Dance Festival, the largest dance festival in Europe.

OBSIDIAN pieces premiere May 23rd at the 29th Reykjavik Art Festival

Pieces from Babel(words) by Damien Jalet and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

The world famous choreographers Damien Jalet and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui have created a piece that explores language and its relationship with nationhood, identity and religion. The piece takes us on a search for what that might be, telling both a bold and tender story of personal, physical, cultural, political and linguistic boundaries, and guessing all the time what it is that unites rather than divides us.

Black Marrow by Damien Jalet and Erna Ómarsdóttir to original music by Ben Frost

Originally choreographed for Chunky Moves in Australia in 2009, the piece is recreated for Iceland Dance Company for the 29th Reykjavik Art Festival. The piece itself is a nauseating reflection of our society but one that suggests that life can survive amidst the harshest of conditions. Black Marrow is a great demonstration of the sheer physical power of the human body.
