In 2010 Margrét was one of three choreographers awarded eight months residency in the K3 residency in Hamburg, Germany, a press release states.
There she researched and created “On Misunderstanding” which was premiered in the Kampangel theatre in Hamburg in November 2010.
Margrét has worked as an independent choreographer in Iceland and abroad since she finished her BA degree in choreography from ArtEZ Arts University in Arnhem, the Netherlands, in 2006.
Alongside working on her own choreography Margrét is one of the founding members of the performance group Me and My Friends who have staged the pieces “Humanimal” and “Be My Guest”.
For “Humanimal” Margrét was awarded the Icelandic Theatre Prize as Choreographer of the Year (2009) with Saga Sigurðardóttir and was also named Dancer of the Year.
The performance of “On Misunderstanding” is produced by K3-Tanzplan Hamburg and supported by the Goethe-Institut in Germany and the National Theatre of Iceland. Set and costume design is by Elín Hansdóttir.
