Reykjavik Dance Festival + LOKAL

This year Reykjavík Dance Festival celebrates its 20th Birthday, and as we wish to celebrate it with friends, we have teamed up with Lókal International Performing Arts Festival to make a five-day party for the ages.

“Diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being invited to dance” - Vernā Myers.

Recently a much needed discussion has taken place about inclusion in the performing arts in Iceland, or lack thereof. RDF has over the years emphasised diversity and inclusion through the artists it presents and the communities it reaches, and will continue to do so. There is power in getting to choose who gets to be seen and who does not, so we want to continue this conversation, be an accessible festival and a platform for diverse bodies, voices and representations.

Inspired by the words of Vernā Myers, we invite everybody to dance at our birthday party full of performances, concerts, raves, workshops, talks, walks and get-togethers!
