On 21st of October in Iceland Dance Company there will be a double evening with two performances realized in cooperation between Silesian Dance Theatre and Iceland Dance Company: “Colorblind” (choreography: Sigríður Soffía Níelsdóttir) and “Singletrack” (choreography: Jacek £umiñski). Those performances already had premiere in Poland, during XVII Annual International Contemporary Dance Conference and Performances Festival in Bytom. Now it’s time to show it to Icelandic audience



“Colorblind” is a story about our existence, about our condition in the world. It seems to say: “With time you start to realize that even though you are colorblind, the world is still in color”. After Polish premiere one of critics wrote about this performance: “Performance “Colorblind” by Iceland Dance Company and Silesian Dance Theatre takes us into space where we can substantially feel the metaphor of human life. From the dark stage we can hear voice taking us into the performance’s idea – throwing man into the world’s whirl, his struggle with life.”

“Singletrack” is a beautiful and detailed gymnastic performance, divided into a few segments referring to everyday life. The core of the narration could be found in a million of messages in thousands of stories, but is it really necessary? Accepting the body as the main object of perception, and carnality as the main theme of the piece seems enough. For some works, any attempt to interpret them will lead to over-interpretation. These works of the artistic soul should be experienced and perceived without trying to explain them. The plot of the piece is a living entity, taking a new form each time it is staged. Art is life, and life is filled with art. The cogs of the machine fit perfectly.
