14 November, 6pm, Q-Teatteri
GALA is a crossbreed between a performance, a celebration and a community event. It brings together a range of people with different backgrounds who all belong to a minority of some kind. Some of these minorities are existing groups, others will be created specifically for this project. Thus the entwining of reality and fiction will give the participants a chance to reflect on their own identity and position in relation to others, in a festive and humorous setting.
Founded in 2009, Kviss búmm bang consists of the three founding members Eva Björk Kaaber, Eva Rún Snorradóttir and Vilborg Ólafsdóttir. The collective has performed at several festivals in Europe, including Wiener Festwochen and Baltic Circle and is at the moment a participant in the Global City – Local City project of the festival network Theater/Festivals in Transition.
Supported by HIAP and Nordic Culture Fund
Co-produced by Bunker, Lubljana and Baltic Circle
Realised within the framework of the Global City – Local City project, funded by the Culture Programme of the European Union.
