          • What is it?: The Jukebox attempts to find a new angle on music performances and well-known dance choreographies in today’s pop culture with a powerful and daring theater experience, balancing on the edge of dance and music. The Jukebox is a dance concert where both mediums are treated as equals. The Jukebox is a part of the Reykjavik Arts Festival, supported by European Youth in Action program, in collaboration with the National theater of Iceland.
