Neon by Hannes Þór Egilsson
During the creative process, all movements were choreo- graphed in the IDC studio in the presence of the IDC dancers. Guided by his own experience as a dancer, Hannes empha- sizes the importance of being aware of every single moment while dancing. With this he strives to make the dancer’s intent more visible and lend it a stronger focus, thus making every detail impressive.
What a feeling by Halla Ólafsdóttir and Lovísa Ósk Gunnarsdóttir
In their continuous search for new approaches when creating dance, Halla and Lovísa use the conventional as a medium for expressing the exceptional. They are interested in collaboration and want to focus on the dancer as an individual. Working closely with the IDC dancers they have designed a personal favourite solo for each dancer, based on their inner desires, aspirations and history.
