Listening Party is a party on stage where the hosts are a group of teenagers eager to share their favorite music with you and each other. They hang out and listen to music in support and celebration of one another and teenage-hood. They might sing along or dance along or tell stories.
Listening Party is about listening; listening to music and listening to teenagers. Created in close collaboration with the hosts/performers, it is a unique opportunity to engage with an often misrepresented group and be taken back to what, for most of us, is a long gone era. You are invited, but remember it’s their party and they cry if they want to.
Ásrún Magnúsdóttir was born in Reykjavík in the late eighties. She wants to stretch the dominant modes of dance and choreography and has created many works in that spirit, which have been well received and nominated for interesting awards, even received some. At the moment she is interested in working with people that have not thought so much about dance or dancing and trying to make invisible choreographies visible.
Ásrún has great experience in working with different groups of people, like teenagers, children, her own neighbors and “normal” people living in different cities.
