SACRIFICE Comes To Iceland Dance Company

SACRIFICE Comes To Iceland Dance CompanyThe Iceland Dance Company presents the spiritual experience of SACRIFICE, running from March 16, 2019, to April 9, 2019.

SACRIFICE is a collection of new commanding creations exploring the relationship between art and religion. Inspired by the idea of the ritual as an essential part of life, SACRIFICE takes over Reykjavík City Theatre in a celebration of dance, art and music where audiences move from one space to the next, experiencing a different ritual in each place.

No Tomorrow, a new creation by performance- and visual artist Ragnar Kjartansson and choreographer Margrét Bjarnadóttir. A ballet for eight dancers and eight guitars to the music by The National's Bryce Dessner. Union of the North, created by renowned American visual artist Matthew Barney, choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir and musician Valdimar Jóhannsson is a performative video installation, attempting to fuse together consumerism and the spiritual in an act of marriage.

Dies Iraeby visual artist Gabriela Friðriksdóttir is part video-installation, part choreographed ritual that focuses on the transition from life to death. Made in collaboration with Ómarsdóttir and Jóhannsson, the video also serves as an inspiration for their choreography, Shrine. Finally the festivities reach an immersive peak at the already bustling Market, where people present their beliefs, ideas and solutions for a sustainable future.
