Dance for me

12th January

Dance For Me is the award-winning collaboration of performance makers Pétur Ármannsson (IS) and Brogan Davison (UK). Their first project, Dance for me (2013), propelled them into the international performance scene and they have since made Petra (2014), Stripp (2016), The Brogan Davison Show (2017) and The Brogan Davison Show (2019). Located within the field of real fiction, their work explores the relationship of a lived life and it’s representation and tackles questions that arise from the act of staging a ‘self’ through their trademark vulnerable and off-key approach to performance making.  Dance For Me’s work has been presented in dance and theatre contexts in Iceland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, the UK, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and Canada in venues such as Lókal International Performance Festival, Reykjavík Dance Festival (Iceland), Mousonturm (Germany), BIT Teatergarasjen (Norway) and Bora Bora, … Read More »

Folk Opera Iceland

Posted by leikhopar1 in Company1. Comments Off on Folk Opera Iceland

11th January

Folk Opera Iceland is an Icelandic opera company that strives to introduce opera to new corners of our society. Our dream is to break the cultural barrier that surrounds opera and make it accessible to all classes and ages.

We produce small scale productions that are mobile in order to run our show in public spaces such as bars, parks and hospitals.

Folk Opera Iceland was founded by Ísabella Leifsdóttir (Singer), Signý Leifsdóttir (Arts Manager), Sigríður Didda Aradóttir (Arts Manager) and Ingólfur Árnason (Director) in 2011.

Current Production

Folk Opera Iceland is working on producing a new opera by Michael Betteridge and Ingunn Lára Kristjánsdóttir called The Echo Chamber.

Previous Production

The professional amateurs

Posted by leikhopar1 in Company1. Comments Off on The professional amateurs

11th January

The Professional Amateurs were founded in May 2005, a group of established artists interested in pushing borders and making theatre that is reflective by nature. The Professional Amateurs offer their audience progressive theatre free and independent in process, form and content. They neither regard their performances as entertainment nor a convenient product but rather as a dialog between actors and audience about relevant issues concerning the human nature and until this day have not accepted any admission fees. Currently the group is working on a Quintology; a series of five “Eternal” pieces that address the human template.
