ALDA

11 June4 September

ALDA is a live dance performance installation birthed from lasting collaboration between Eva Signý Berger and Katrín Gunnarsdóttir.

When translated as WAVE, ALDA not only reflects on the form of movement but also refers to time and history, the old and the emerging new. The driving force behind choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir’s current work has been the creation of movement language and imagery from softness, sensitivity, ever-changing movement and the integration of bodies with their environment. In ALDA she draws upon the history of women’s collective physical labour, in particular its relation to repetitive motions and song, to generate an event of intimate female assembly, convergence and coalescence.

 

Artistic directors are Choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir, Costume and Set Designer Eva Signý Berger, Sound Designer Baldvin Þór Magnússon in collaboration with the curator and the dancers.

 

The installation is a co-production with the Reykjavík Arts Festival.
