The Teenager Festival
5 - 17th of March 2018
Over the last year, Reykjavík Dance Festival has been working on a series of projects in collaboration with a unique team of teenagers from Reykjavík. Inspiring, smart, creative and empowered voices – who have the power to make magic happen. It has been our honour to get to work with them.
These teenagers - in collaboration with the RDF team - have been making a festival together. A programme of activities that will live in the city through workshops, performances, seminars, publications and public interventions.
A programme of activities that meets in the crossovers between dance, theatre, choreography, performance, fashion, visual arts and design. There have been, and will be, take overs of a swimming pool, a greenhouse, a gallery, a theatre, as well a whole host of secret locations across the city from board rooms, to bus stops, to school corridors. For these teenagers, this festival is a platform for them to speak to each other, as well as to the city at large – and they are taking it right to where they want it to be. Teenagers on the stage, behind the stage, in the audience, on the television, on the airwaves, and out there in the city – all the time dealing with dance, choreography, performance, art and design in extraordinary ways.
It has been a true honour to work with them.
There was also a workshop with APAP related collective Superamas for the performance: Chekchov: Fast and Furious. in a preparation for the performance which will take place in november this year. the Facebook for that event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/194720397935202/
