FIELDWORKS invites 27 professional performing artists, who seek to develop, cultivate and enrich the Nordic performance scene with inspiration from the remarkable Icelandic landscape.

The prominent International performing artists Annabel Arden (Theatre de Complicité, London), Philippe Quesne (Vivarium Studio, Paris) and Richard Maxwell (NYC Players, New York), who have all developed a strong and distinctive voice, will guide three different workshops.

Together with the participants they will explore, develop and create, and present the workshop site-specifically at the 'Lókal' festival in Reykjavik.

The three workshop leaders will each decide towards what aspect of Icelandic nature their workshops will be guided. As mentors they will share their expertise and ideas and guide the participants in their creative process and art making. They will transmit their personal artistic methods to the participants and a new common language will grow. An important aspect of the project is thus the interaction and sharing of knowledge between the International artists and the local Nordic artists.

You can choose between the following workshops:
