The Institute of Recycled Expectations
Premieres October 10th 2019
An extravaganza of decadence, drag, and dance
The Institute of Recycled Expectations proudly presents Memoirs of a Valkyrie. A drag celebration of the extraordinary cultural icon Brunhilde. Free yourself from the burden of intelligence and enjoy a festive evening at Tjarnarbíó where dance, song, and general shenanigans shall guide you through the life, passions, and adventures of our beloved heroine.
Your hostesses for the evening are all seasoned performers of the Icelandic stage and nightlife. These queens will be serving glamour, spilling tea, and sharing their extraordinary gifts and questionable talents. This is the show you never knew you desperately needed!
