Ármann Einarsson, 50 years old, lives in Akureyri in North Iceland. He is a music school teacher, father of three and holds the Icelandic record in triple jumping since 1979.
In 2013 he revealed to his daughter-in-law, choreographer Brogan Davison, his life-long desire to perform contemporary dance, ideally 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?
OBS! The performance plays on the Small Stage. This means that the seat numbering at the ticket site Billetlugen does not apply.
"...it takes courage to go so far out of your comfort zone like Ármann does, but it is possible with the help of a professional like Brogan"
