Are we Ok?
Choreography by Daniel Roberts
Music by Maria Huld Markan Sigfusdottir

Water, our most abundant yet precious resource, determines the sustainability of Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, and artic regions. The disappearance of the glacier Ok in Iceland made world headlines and deepened the focus on water—it’s presence as a gaseous, liquid, and solid form— and how changes to Earth’s rising temperatures affect all conditions of life, including movement and sound, in our daily existences.

Inspired by aspects of Andri Snær Magnason’s book On Time and Water, choreographer Daniel Roberts and composer María Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir create Are we Ok?, a site-specific work performed within the atrium spaces of Harpa. Are we Ok? will highlight architect Ólafur Elíasson´s unique interior architecture for Harpa and feature an international cast of dancers and musicians.
