CLOAK is no less a ceremony than a piece of dance: A group of people joins together for a ceremony about love – love that challenges, dissolves and unites.

Gríma award winner Saga Sigurðardóttir is a dancer, choreographer and theology student from Reykjavík. After studying modern dance at the Iceland National Ballet School she trained as a dance maker at the ArtEZ academy in The Netherlands. Saga has since worked as a progressive dance artist, winning numerous prizes and recognitions for her pieces. Saga is interested in the human being in the world and on stage. Her piece CLOAK is inspired by Sufism, a form of Islamic mysticism, where one meets eternity in dance.
