Ásrún Magnúsdóttir: Listening Party
Listening Party: a party on stage, the hosts are a big group of local teenagers, aged 13-17 years old.
They play their favourite music. Sometimes they sing along or dance along or cry along or whatever. They talk about their music and about themselves, ideas, worries, thoughts and dreams. They hang out, listen to music together and listen to each other with their audience. They support each other, celebrate each other and their teenage years. It’s their party and they do whatever they want.
Choreographer Ásrún Magnúsdóttir was born in Reykjavík in the late eighties. Currently, she is interested in working with people that have not given dance or dancing much thought and trying to make invisible choreographies visible.
