Union of the North

One of the world's most tenacious concepts is the idea of a father, mother and a child. In Sumerian mythology, however, everything was the work of the goddess Nammu, the eternal ocean. Now said Nammu holds a job at a shopping centre. She stands behind the counter of a Dunkin' Donuts at closing time, fixes a golden donut in preparation of a wedding ceremony and waits for teams of excited stags and hens to arrive. This is a reality show featuring great dancers as normal working people who aim at putting a new twist on an ancient ritual between communalism and individuality - full of fantastic visual power (Barney) and quirky humour (Ómarsdóttir).

Duration: 75 min

Produced and performed by Iceland Dance Company
Union of the North is part of SACRIFICE – a festival of common things made holy.
