Crisis Meeting / Kriðpleir

  • Mengi Óðinsgata Reykjavík, Capital Region, 101 Iceland (map)

Oscillating between anarchy, sit-com and Samuel Beckett, Kriðpleir Theater Group takes on different and – at times – completely unmanageable projects, driven by the members´ desperate longing for truth, social acceptance and respect.

This time Friðgeir Einarsson and his companions are in midst of writing a major application for the Arts Council. The guys have a deadline approaching, but being avid fans of open-door policies and the culture of sharing, they´ve decided to take time off to reveal their working methods during a series of short sessions.

"Crisis Meeting" is an introduction to the strange world ofKriðpleir; a golden opportunity for arts enthusiasts and professionals to level with the performers, watch them at work and contemplate on the mysterious ways of the performing arts.
