Out in the World - Experiences of Excursions

Performing Arts Centre Iceland invites performing artists to a conversation about tours on December 14th in Tjarnarbíó.  What are the first steps to take in international exhibitions and collaborations?  How did the opportunities come about?  How do we proceed?

Special guests for the evening will be performing artists who all have extensive experience working internationally: Gísli Örn Garðarsson director and founder of Vesturport, Helga Arnalds artistic director Ten Fingers, Ásrún Magnúsdóttir choreographer and Tinna Grétarsdóttir choreographer.  They will share their different experiences of exhibiting abroad and answering questions from the event's guests.  

Performing Arts Centre offers drinks and a Christmas mood.  The program is about 90 minutes.

Vesturport was founded in 2001 and put on a number of exhibitions between 2001 and 2011, most notably Brim, Romeo and Juliet, Hamskiptin, Woyzek and Faust.  These exhibitions toured the world across the globe, Europe, North and South America and Asia.

Ten Fingers was founded in 1993 by Helga Arnalds, its artistic director.  Her exhibition Life - a mudslide that premiered in 2014 has been a triumphant tour around the world and has been shown across Europe, but also quite a bit in China, and most recently this year it was shown in Montenegro and Japan.

Ásrún Magnúsdóttir, choreographer with her colleague Alexander Roberts, form the duo Ásrún and Alex.  Their collaboration with young people has spawned shows such as Listening Party (2017) and Teenage Songbook of Love and Sex (2019) that are still touring the world.

Bíbí and Blaka have been creating dance performances for young audiences since 2012.  The exhibitions Skýjaborg, Fetta and Bretta, Vera and the lake and Spor have travelled extensively around the Nordic countries and beyond. Bíbí and Blaka have also collaborated with performing arts groups in Ireland and Lithuania.
