Premiere of MOLTA at 18:00
MOLTA is an immersive interdisciplinary installation and live performance. A hall in Gerðarsafn has been transformed into an ecosystem. During opening hours of the museum, the installation is open for museum visitors, but after closing, on pre decided nights, dancers from Iceland Dance Company take over the space and become part of the ecosystem. The audience can lie in the green grass and enjoy the sunlight while watching the dancers interact with the installation which melts, drips, breaks down, grows, blends and evaporates.
The exhibition is an immersive experience that lasts four hours. Guests can walk in and out of the space as they please, but the ticket includes food and drinks served by chef Kjartani Óla Guðmundsson. The food is part of the ecosystem itself, nature and the performers are part of what will be served. It is a unique experience where all the senses of the audience are activated.
Performance nights of MOLTA are as follows;
25th January, 6PM
27th January, 6PM
3rd February, 6PM
4th February, 6PM
Only 40 people can attend each performance. Tickets available at tix.is
The show is a joint project between Rósa and the Icelandic dance group.
