The dark winters in Iceland can be extremely lonely, with only a few hours sunlight and generally downbeat atmosphere among the population. It's from this background that Ice "oh" lation is created.

 

As a foreigner in a new country, isolated from his surroundings and without contact to the local community, Andreas uses gestures to create this satirical piece featuring a lone, naked performer together with a white box suspended from the ceiling at head height, and a podium with an unanswered telephone with the backdrop of "Isloation of the sexes" projected behind.

 

Showcased in Iceland and UK, this piece could work either as a gallery installation or on stage. 

Performed at Klassíski Listdansskólinn, Reykjavik. Iceland and The Robin Howard Dance Theatre, The Place. London
