This Conversation is Missing a Point- A dance piece by Unnur Elísabet and Berglind Rafns. Premiered 28th of October in Tjarnarbíó.

Music: Þorsteinn Eyfjörð

Light design:  Arnar Ingvarsson

Producer: Hallfríður Þóra Tryggvadóttir

 

 The dance piece is a artistic and comical take on people's difficulties with expressing themselves. The route of the story is from Berglind and Unnur's life. They have one thing in common. They have had difficulties in their life with expressing themselves with words. That is why dance has become their passion in life. In this piece they combine their comical stories and passion by showing their heart and battle in detailed and interesting choregraphy. They ask questions: „should I say this” or “should I do this?". Their answers are missing a point and the show is in jibberish.

The choreographers and dancers, Berglind and Unnur, where eager to create this piece to show their dramatic moments in life in a comical way without taking away the artistic point of view. With the piece they show how humour can be expressed through dance.

 

A review by York Underwood for Reykjavík Grapevine:

"The show is dance comedy, with aspects of clowning. When it starts, you don’t understand how the show can possibly work, but within a few minutes the crowd is laughing along with the gibberish. I will confess: I love dance. This is the most accessible dance performance that I’ve ever seen. It never dips in energy and doesn’t overstay its welcome. It’s a really good show. Take a date, a friend or go on your own. You’ll be in a good mood for the rest of the night."
