19:00 - Door opens
19:30 - 21:00
The performance group Kriðpleir consists of
Árni Vilhjálmsson, Friðgeir Einarsson and Ragnar Ísleifur
Bragason. Their performances are curious combination for
fiction and reality where different subject threads such as
anarchy, television sitcoms and themes that are even reminiscent of Samuel Becket's work come together. The group's projects
are many, and at times they seem impossible, but the member's desire for truth, social acknowledgement and respect moves mountains. Crisis meeting is an introduction to the weird world
of Kriðpleir; a great opportunity for art lovers and business people to get to know the group's members better, and to watch them work while pondering the mysterious ways of performance arts.
21:00 - 21:30
A concert with three of the best Nordic improvisational musicians, Skúli Sverrisson, Hilmar Jensson and Arve Henriksen. Unprejudiced and curious approach towards music is one of the links that connect these three musicians. They’ve all been inspired by music from all over the world, ancient and new; music based in classical traditions of many continents along with experimental music of our time, noise, drone, electronica, post-rock, minimalism to name but few. Their sources mold their strong, distinctive voices that can not be defined or labelled. Music based on deep knowledge, continuous practice and relentless search.The album Saumur is released via Mengi's record label, it contains music by the three artists, and this is the first time that these musicians collaborate together.
