        • What is it?: The clowns of the Reykjavík City Theatre have brought to the stage many wonderful performances. So far, they have made an adaptation of Dante‘s Divine Comedy, titled The Seven Deadly Sins, and their award-winning performance titled Little Jesus is an adaptation of the Nativity of Jesus from the Bible. Now, the clowns intend to tackle the subject of philosophy and emulate Socrates, one of the founders of Western Philosophy, by asking question after question after question, in order to get at least one step closer to answers and values that all the world can agree on. Nothing is irrelevant to the clowns, who propose to wrestle with the big questions of life in their own inimitable, open and sincere way, which can result in both comedy and tragedy, cruelty and kindness. Little Jesus, the last clown show produced at Reykjavík City Theatre, was the unequivocal winner of the 2010 Gríman, the Iceland Performing Arts Awards, winning both the Play of the Year and the Performance of the Year awards, as well as receiving seven nominations in other categories.
