  • What is it?
  • A mythical theater experience based on the transformational story of the Phoenix. Eivör Pálsdóttir, musical treasure of the Faroe Islands, Reijo Kela unique experimental dancer from Finland and María Ellingsen actress from Iceland breath life into this symbolic myth. They take the audience into of a dreamlike world where they have a close encounter with the actor and the dancer as the singer casts a spell. What do we do when the foundations of our existence suddenly tumble and fall? Myths serve like roadmaps when travelling through unfamiliar territory. The story of the Phoenix gives the audience an opportunity to reflect on their personal experience. To travel with the bird into the fire where he burns to ashes, transforms and takes to the skies again. Reminding us that at the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation.
