Reykjavik Arts Festival
Moetivi Caravan is a unique micro-theatre experience for a small number of guests, set in a travelling caravan. This captivating production for all ages uses animation, music, theater, puppet theater and audio-visual production to explore the difference between the optional mobile home that a caravan symbolizes for many, and how the experience changes when a mobile home is the result of an involuntary journey or a crisis.
The audience is guided through an open-ended story, shaping their own experience as they glimpse into small worlds, private lives, and explore a thousand tiny moments that bring us back home.
Handbendi is a multi-award winning puppetry theatre company based in Hvammstangi and the recipient of Eyrarrósin. Moetivi Caravan will visit Hvammstangi, Akureyri, Búðardalur, Stykkishólmur, Grundarfjörður, Rif, Akranes, Borgarnes, Iðnó, Gerðuberg and Elliðaárdalur. The first Elliðaárdalur performance will be wheelchair accessible.
