THE GREAT GATHERING
A large group of adults and children dance together with buzz in the ears, stereo of sound and steamy fog. Splashing in puddles with bleeding noses, they live in another world where they are never invisible. Spinning round and round – holding hands – the whole world a blur.
The Great Gathering was a commissioned work for The Iceland Dance Company and was made specially for Norður og Niður, art festival curated by the band Sigur Rós. They brought together performances from friends and collaborators from all over the world.
It has toured different venues in Reykjavík, was happening at the Reykjavík Art Festival in 2018 and at the Childrens Art Festivaln in 2019.
