On my way to Ganz Novi Festival in Zagreb!
Gonna give a workshop "No Border Folk Dance" and throw a crazy Danceoke together with Alexander Roberts every night of the festival.
Listening party is a work for stage that will premiere at the National Theater at the festival Everybody’s Spectacular in November 2017.
30 teenagers, 13-16 years old, invite to a Listening Party.
-It’s our party and we cry if we want to -
We are gonna play our favourite music. Sometimes we will sing along or dance along or cry along or whatever else. We are gonna talk about our music and about ourselves, our ideas, worries, thoughts and dreams. We are gonna hang out, listen to music together and listen to each other with our audience. The stage will be ours, the words will be ours, we have the power - even though it’s just during the show - it’s our party and we can do whatever we want.

In December Sigur Ros and Iceland Dance Company – along with various other artists – will join forces at Sigur Ros’s Arts Festival Norður og niður.
The festival will be held at Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik and will offer dance pieces by me and Alexander Roberts. We will work with the dancers of the Icelandic Dance Company as well as kids aged 8 - 18 years old.
Will design movements and/or make choreography for this new play written by Lóa Hlín Hjálmtýsdóttir, directed by my very good friend Kolfinna Nikulásardóttir and the actresses in it are all very known and successful in Iceland, so I'm pretty stressed.
Will premiere in January at the Reykjavík City Theatre.
