Museum Night 2023 in Hafnarhús!

"Day by day the years are passing through a circular movement at a scale that goes beyond our understanding. A constant movement that sets the rhythm of your life, of my life. Might the orbit
of the moon be our only physical reference to our conception of time?
In this work the dancers will explore an atmosphere where the orbit of a lamp is their only perception of time. Creating a movement scape in which we invite the audience to be present with the dancers. HOFIE is a character frame, a feeling, an aesthetic that one as a performer can become. “
“The body continues without the soul and emotions, when the music ends they come back together, as the soul and emotions were at rest.” - Hafey (dancer)
* As an audience member you will be on the stage with the dancers, please be mindful of the dancers and the space they need in order to perform. The facilitators present during the performance will guide you into the space, if any questions feel free to ask them. Chairs and pillows available.
