About the performance
Ármann Einarsson, 50 years old, lives in Iceland, a music school teacher and father of three. In 2013 he revealed to his daughter-in-law, choreographer Brogan Davison, his life-long desire to perform contemporary dance on stage, although he has never had any proper dance training. And so he and Brogan together developed an award-winning contemporary dance piece, celebrated first by local audiences and then at international festivals all over the world: is dance really for everybody?
Dance For Me is about stepping out of our comfort zones, daring to make our dreams come true and the ultimate question: Is dance for everybody?
