Margrét Bjarnadóttir (ISL) is a multidisciplinary artist working in the fields of dance, performance, visual arts and writing. In the past years she has moved between choreography, photography, text work, drumming, glass cutting, video pieces and writing.

Authentic Movement is her favourite practice which she finds serves all her different disciplines. She describes the workshop: it is improvisation and self expression through texture, colour, emotion, imagery, characters, dreams and memory. The workshop suits anyone from any artistic practice. No previous knowledge of authentic movement or so is needed.

Margrét choreographed Björk’s Utopia tour as well as Björk´s latest show, Cornucopia, which premiered at The Shed in New York in May 2019. In 2017 Margrét created the ’guitar ballet’ No Tomorrow with artist Ragnar Kjartansson and composer Bryce Dessner for the Iceland Dance Company. The piece was awarded “show of the year” at the Icelandic Theatre Awards. Margrét has had her work performed and exhibited in various festivals and galleries internationally and is based in Reykjavík.

Oblivia’s Annika Tudeer met Margét in Århus last year and fell in love with her take on authentic movement, “I realised that at my core, I am – still, and will obviously always be – a dancer”. Celebrating Oblivia 20 years we want to share our love for Margréts work in a 3-day workshop.
