Dance walk and opening reception of the Reykjavík Arts Festival
Reykjavík Arts Festival 2016 opens with a dance walk downtown on Saturday 21 May at 1 pm. The walk celebrates the diversity of dance in Iceland which is reflected in the many and diverse dance performances in the festival programme.
The dance walk is made in collaboration with the Reykjavík Art Museum and the Icelandic dance scene. The flexing dancers from Brooklyn and Manchester who will launch the festival’s dance programme on Saturday night will participate in the walk. We encourage you to do the same!
The walk is open to everyone who loves to dance and / or would like to participate. You can join us at the start or on the way: We will walk from the Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarhus to the National Gallery of Iceland where we will continue to dance. Launch of the festival is at 1 PM in front of National Gallery of Iceland.
We meet up in the courtyard of the Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarhús, at 12 noon on Saturday 21 May and the walk will leave at 1 pm and led by African drummers.
