ALLIR VELKOMNIR – FRÍTT INN
On the location in a beautiful countryside in south Iceland, where we filmed our short film “Three years” which I wrote and directed.
11:18 theatre company presents:
A major new project currently in development in collaboration with writer Glen Neath. LOST is a unique audio-visual experience on a real train journey, which asks questions about what it means to be LOST both literally and metaphorically, where the landscape provides a moving, ever changing setting for the narrative.
Lost invites audiences to relinquish control and expectations. Suspended between departure and destination can we adapt to an altered reality, allow the journey to take us, rather than choosing the journey we take?
Strengir (Strings) by Vinnslan.
This is what happened:
‘In this world you are either a farmer or a fisherman. But how do you know which one you are?’
The Farmer & The Fisherman takes place while the audience is travelling on a train from Coleraine to Derry, a route once described as one of the world’s great train journeys.*
Taking the archetypes of the farmer and fisherman as a starting point, the piece invites the audience/passenger to explore how the land and the sea has shaped this region, its people and their choice of whether to stay or see what is beyond this island.
In Spring/Summer 2013, 11:18 spent 2 months on the Irish North coast researching, gathering and sharing material about the area with different communities along the train route. We have also worked creatively with local people who live or work close to the railway line. Some of them provided voices; some offered up their land to place installations on and some even appeared as live performers along the route.

“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?
