Episodes is a unique dance piece where older and younger generations of the Icelandic dance tradition meet. It portrays dancers who at all times wait in the shadow to be called on stage for their moment to shine. Moments of anticipation and triumph, doubts and success are woven together in beautiful stories, and brought to life in a new context.

Episodes is as global as it is Icelandic. It is a homage to every dancer in the world, as well as the world in every dancer.

Please observe that the performance has strobe lights.
