Dance Atelier - choreographers' workspace
Dance Atelier was from 2010 -2017 situated at Skúlagata in the centre of Reykjavík. The role of the Atelier was to provide a place for established as well as aspiring choreographers to develop ideas, experiment and rehearse new creations. Workshops on dance and choreography were offered on an irregular basis.
The Atelier was home for Reykjavik Dance Festival and many dance organizations in Iceland. Dance Atelier is run by the Dance House Collective which aim is to gather the local dance community, institutions, independent artists, festivals and organisations in a Dance House.
We have unfortunately been forced to move out of our space in Skúlagata and are now looking for a new home with our collaborators. We will let you all know as soon as anything is signed.
A few weeks ago this little image popped up on facebook. It is by the theatre maker Andrea Vilhjálmsdóttir and with the hashtag #rísidanshús she asks for a DanceHouse in Iceland. We urge you all to use this hashtag if you are posting about dance in Iceland on social media.
