  • What is it ?
  • White for Decay is created for six dancers and a music box. Four dancers perform the piece which examines lives and relationships of people in unusual circumstances. How a difficult situation can change a person or their personality. How desperation materialises and people turn into a shadow of themselves. During the creation process the group researched various materials such as news from “Our Century 1939-51”.

  • Excerpts from reviews:
  • ” In the piece different circumstances are used; relationships, desperation and how the human being can change after going throuhg a difficult experience. Different movement patterns are used, for example circus art, contemporary dance and stepp. The surrounding of the piece, audio, setting, costumes and lights are very well executed. The piece is very visual and is a strong whole. Sigríður Soffía works now for the first time with the Iceland Dance Company and it is safe to say that she brings fresh air, which is great to see the company work with. "White for Decay" is without a doubt the climax of the evening..."

  • “White for Decay" by Sigríður Soffía Níelsdóttisr was the second piece performed. And when I think back, it was the one that charmed me the most. Sigríður Soffia is stunning in the lead role against three gentlemen, Ásgeir Helgi Magnússoni, Cameron Corbett and Hannes Þór Egilsson....All of them show and incredible technique and a very nice  interaction in the later half, which flows like a river over the stage and slowly runs out. A very impressive piece...."
