FIRSTS: PROWESS (presented by RDF & Lókal)


Firsts is a series of works by merging Icelandic dance and performance makers. The creators are Gígja Jónsdóttir, Guðrún Selma Sigurjónsdóttir, Anna Kolfinna Kuran and Björn Leó Brynjarsson. All the performances take place at Smiðjan, the student theatre of the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Presented by Reykjavík Dance Festival and LÓKAL

"Nobody means anything because nobody dares to, and if they would want to nobody would understand because they'd think he would be joking."

PROWESS is a new piece for the stage by Björn Leó Brynjarsson, dealing with an artist’s desire for success in modern society and his battle with his own ego. The performance group aims for an immersive stage experience where text and narrative meet in an experiment with choreography, classical acting, the presence of the body and movement.

TAKATAKA is an artist collective that seeks to give the audience an holistic experience where there is no way out.
