DANCE FOR ME (2013)
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?
Dance for me was nominated in the Icelandic Theatre Awards in the categories “Choreographer of the year” and “Best newcomers”, "The Space to Dance” award from Southeast Dance in the UK and was nominated as “Dance show of the year” and won “People's choice” in the DV culture awards 2014.
