BRANSINN - REVÍA

BRANSINN -  REVÍA er bráðfyndið verk eftir leiklistar- og tónlistarnemendur Listaháskólans undir handleiðslu Dóru Jóhannsdóttur, Kristjönu Stefánsdóttur og Sigurðar Halldórssonar. 

Verkið er samstarfsverkefni sviðlista- og tónlistardeildar Listaháskólans þar sem unnið var með samsköpunar aðferðir. Hópurinn vann satíru-kómedíu-senur útfrá samtölum, samvinnu, spuna og skrifum.

Tónlist og hljóðmynd er frumsamin af hópnum. Ferlið einkenndist af mikilli leikgleði og við viljum smita ykkur.

Guðný Ósk Karlsdóttir: Graduate concert

Guðný Ósk gives her graduate concert from the music department of IUA (Iceland University of the Arts) on Friday, May 11th at 8pm. The concert will be held at Salurinn, Kópavogur. Free entrance - everybody welcome.

Singing, dancing and improvisation will be in the forefront and Guðný will talk about the connection between these art forms. During her studies in Creative Music Communication, Guðný has focused on classical singing. She will perform music from different musicals along with music from operas and movies.

"For me, stuying at the Iceland University of the Arts was a key. Not a key that opens only one door, but a key that opened my eyes to the unprecedented possibilities that surround my environment as a musician. I learned how to work in situations where the final goal or outcome was not obvious at all, got to know people with different views on life and the arts, and managed to master my own conviction as an artist. We do not graduate with a key to one single work but the knowledge that we create our own opportunities and the tool-kit ready at hand.

Since I graduated I have been working on music from various sides; as a singer, performer, composer, I've designed and directed my own music workshops, taught at music schools, made my own radio programs for children, guided people around our music hall Harpa ... but also prepared dinner for hungry tourists. Beacause life and art lead you to all kinds of destinations."
