Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

erna.jpgErna Omarsdottir has picked up an award for her ongoing work in choreography and performance. Details are thin on the ground about the Honorary Artist of Kópavogur award and pretty much all we can tell you is that Kópavogur is in Iceland and she is the youngest person ever to win it.

Erna, along with Johan Johannsson, has featured on Article19 since 2003 with two snippets from their work 'IBM401 A User's Manual'. Almost three years after it first bowed here at the Lab it has consistently been one of the most popular videos we have ever featured.

That particular work is still touring and has been performed over 60 times around the world and we urge you to check it out if you have the opportunity.

If you know anything else about this particular award and what it means then please let us know. The Icelandic publicity machine has dropped the ball on this one we fear.
