Reykjavík Gearing up for Annual Arts Festival

The program for the 29th Reykjavík Arts Festival was presented earlier this month. Highlights this year include Bandaloop, pioneers in vertical dance performance, and Guerrilla Girls, the feminist masked avengers.

Dancer and choreographer Shantala Shivalingappa, hailed as one of the greatest current practitioners of Kuchipudi, and Magnus Maria, a new opera about the ‘right gender’ are also on the program.

The festival will run from May 13 through June 7 with an array of events across different genres. Emphasizing new commissions, the performances and contemporary and classical exhibitions will take place in both major cultural venues and unconventional spaces.
