Like daytime TV – but for dance addicts! Springback Magazine produced our first live stream at Ice Hot Reykjavik, December 2018

Watch Springback Live from Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform on demand for a seriously sidelong look at the festival – including Iceland Dance Company’s mega-marathon Sacrifice, plus quick dips into Nordic performances, interviews featuring sequinned sea monsters, dancing kids, acoustic chordal choreography, critics in wigs, and a ritual exorcism of dirty floors!

TIP: click the  vimeo full screen icon  icon on the video player to watch in full screen.

1/10. Director of Ice Hot Dance Reykjavík Ása Richardsdóttir talks about the Nordic Ice Hot project, a joint venture between Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

2/10. A film about Sacrifice, a mammoth 3-part performance (or collective ritual) by Iceland Dance Company, featuring wild plastics, acoustic chordal choreography and a shopping-mall blood wedding – complete with interval ‘hate yoga’ and black box screaming.

3/10. Norwegian artist Ingri Fiksdal talks about Diorama, a strangely sequinned beachside performance where both human and non-human movement are integral to the experience.

4/10. Kitt Johnson from Denmark talks to Ka Bradley about site-specific performances, and why she wants to avoid the ‘hit and run’ approach.

5/10. Springback Magazine audiovisual editor Marie Pons introduces Icelandic dance artist Bára Sigfúsdóttir at work.

6/10. Teenagers! Neither child nor adult, often not seen, heard or listened to. Choreographer Ásrún Magnusdóttir on her piece for teenagers Listerning Party – and four vocal teens on how it was for them.

7/10. Finnish choreographer Taneli Törmä talks about his piece Classical Beauty, performed with young local ballet students – three of whom come on set to share their experience.

8/10. Lisa Spets from ZebraDans and Vigdis Jakobsdóttir of Reyjavík Arts Festival talk about working for and with young audiences.

9/10. Europe-wide contributors to Springback Magazine get in the tub with Springback editor Sanjoy Roy for a series of quick dips into the performances at Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform 2018 in Reykjavík, Iceland.

10/10. Closing Springback Live at Ice Hot Nordic Dance 2018, Erna Omarsdóttir leads the Springback team in a ritual exorcism of the floor, then Icelandic actor Fridgeir Einarsson reads out the entire list of credits – AND IT’S A WRAP!
