When Iceland meets Iran

Everyone has a body, everyone speaks body-talk. 'Being' shows a physical encounter between the West and the Middle East, with the human body fueling the dialogue as an instrument.

For the first time, Bára Sigfúsdóttir - seen at Vooruit in 2015 with 'The Lover' - is not on stage herself, but translating a meeting with the inspiring Iranian dancers Masoumeh Jalalieh and SeyedAlireza Mirmohammadi onto the stage. Their twisting bodies create subtle sensations and subtexts, showing what the Western European and Iranian culture and society have in common.

After completing her studies at P.A.R.T.S. and successful appearances at festivals such as Theater aan Zee, Icelandic choreographer and stage resident Bára Sigfúsdóttir reaches a new milestone in her journey with 'being'.
