Strengir (Strings)

“What is behind the scenes?”
Vala is currently directing a mixed-media performance by Vinnslan, called Strengir (Strings)
Premiered at Tjarnarbio Theatre, Reykjavik in Oct 2014


Strings (Strengir) is a durational mixed media performance by Vinnslan where we explore the real and the artificial in the theatre. We are really interested in looking behind the masks; when are the performers performing and when are they honest, even vulnerable – or is it even possible in front of an audience? Strings is about the process- where does the material come from and how does it grow with time?
