The Beauty of Living Together

Premieres at Reykjavík Dance Festival, 22. November 2019

The Beauty of Living Together is a guided tour around downtown Reykjavík where the guides are young disabled and abled people. The guides will invite audiences to different places that are them meaningful. They will share stories, songs, dances, dreams and moments or fantasies at each place. These places can be restaurants, a hidden nature paradise, an important institution or anything in between. Each member of the group has chosen a place that is special to them and they want to share with other people.  We know Reykjavík differently, have different experiences, moments and memories from the same places. With this work you are given a chance to travel in a big diverse group around the city center and get to know it differently.
