Event info

They are silent, beautiful, flexible, delicate but still strong and resilient. The opposite of our wild instincts. Plöntusnúður spins the decks for humans and plants in perfect humidity while humans release their inhibitions in a nurturing environment.

Plants and humans party together! Plöntusnúður is a soundscape that will be premiered in Tóma rými on the 4th of September, but later released for streaming so it will be possible to party with your own plants at home.

About the artists.

The performers are Eva Halldóra Guðmundsdóttir and Vigfús Karl Steinsson.

Eva Halldóra Guðmundsdóttir is an educated performance maker and singer. Vigfús Karl Steinsson is a DJ and musician. Together we are Eyrð. Soundscapes, music and the effects of sound occupy our minds. We are greatly influenced by disco and the message of the genre as a whole. We believe in balance, equality and love. The goal of Eyrð is to research, work with and experience sound in a broad sense. By shaping and working with sound we have felt it’s influence. Not just on ourselves but on the environment as a whole. We try to control its effects but let go of the sound itself. Watch it flow into every fiber of our world and hopefully spread the message of love as widely as possible.


Plöntutíð is a new theater- and performance arts festival that will be held for the second time during the 3rd - 5th September. The festival is a platform for artists who work with nature and strive to move beyond anthropocentric performing arts. The performance pieces on the festival are made for plants, in collaboration with plants and even performed by plants.

During Plöntutíð, workshops and a number of stage works will be shown in unconventional spaces around Reykjavík and Kópavogur. The program will be formally launched with a streamed performance called "Thank You for Keeping Me Alive" by Wiola Ujazdowska. The second day, Saturday, is dedicated to the youngsters and family time. The BRUM soundwalk by the performing arts group Trigger Warning takes off in Heiðmörk, then a Plant Theater workshop in Gerðarsafn with Lóa Björk Björnsdóttir is from one to three and the happening The Youth in the Woods will be performed by teenagers led by Ásrún Magnúsdóttir in Öskjuhlíð at four o'clock. In the evening, Jakub Ziemann and Yelena Arakelow receive people in a food experience called Dear Carrot, sorry I forgot you out in the cold. Eva Halldóra Guðmundsdóttir and Vigfús Karl Sigfússon will premiere the soundscape Plöntusnúður for party-thirsty plants in the empty space in Skeljanes. On the last day of the festival, The Plant Becoming Project offers a bus trip around Kleifarvatn in Reykjanes and there will be a Plant Theater in The Botanical Garden in Reykjavík. Finally, there will be an opportunity for the curious to go on a sensational journey in Ecosexuality with Íris Stefanía Skúladóttir and experience the earth as a lover.

Plöntutíð is funded by the Bank of Iceland Entrepreneurship Fund, the Reykjavík Arts and Culture Council, the Kópavogur Arts and Culture Council and the Children's Culture Fund of Iceland. Thank you!!!
