AION was inspired by abstract ideas about time and interdimensional travel. In this new work, choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir and composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir invite guests into a magical world where music and dance meet in an unusual way, where the members of the Iceland Dance Company and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra fuse together into a single entity.
Anna and Erna have both made their mark on the international scene, each of them influential in her artistic discipline. Works by the Iceland Symphony’s Composer-in-Residence, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, have been performed by some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The Iceland Dance Company’s (IDC) Artistic Director, Erna Ómarsdóttir, has won numerous awards for her works, which have been performed at major arts festivals and theatres in Europe and beyond.
AION is a collaborative effort of the IDC, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. It was premiered in Gothenburg in May 2019, performed by the Gothenburg Symphony and the IDC. The performance was hailed by guests and critics alike, with Dagens Nyheter calling it “a force of nature” and Germany’s Die Presse noting how it “demonstrated how much music and movement belong together … music and dancers became a ‘body of sound’.”
A must-see event for all who are interested in contemporary Icelandic music and dance. Don’t miss it!
