FEEL GOOD PERFORMANCE STARRING AN ICELANDIC FAMILY FATHER

Maybe you’ve secretly been dreaming about doing something you never thought was possible? Imagine if you got the chance. Would you take it?

Dance for me is a true story about a 50-year-old Icelandic family father who dared to realize his life-long desire to perform contemporary dance on stage.

With warmth and humour, we follow Ármann, who together with his stepdaughter Brogan, creates an intimate story in which swing, juck, clarinet playing and moonwalk play a role. Together they treat the audience to a real feel-good performance, which has been celebrated by local audiences and at international festivals worldwide. Who and which bodies in actual fact do we see on established dance stages? And is dance really for everybody?
