17:00 Lortur: Djöflafúgan: A dance performance by Gunnlaugur Egilsson at Kling & Bang Gallery.The Icelandic Dance Company performs an extract from Djöflafúgan by Gunnlaugur Egilsson which will be premiered on October 16th as a part of their latest production Duo at the Reykjavik City Theater.
Djöflafúgan tells the story of two people torn between reality and fantasy. Alternating between harmony and discord, the two struggle with attraction and repulsion. With the advent of electric light, the shadow dance of flickering fire and candlelight has all but disappeared. Djöflafúgan is an imaginative tribute to the dancing shadow. Measured and calm but sometimes untamed and diabolic, the mystery may sometimes be out of sight but it’s always present
