Event info

“Skammdegi / Náttleysi" is taken from the old Icelandic calendar referring to the shortest darkest days, and the longest nightless days experienced in the North. Exploring this concept, Passepartout Duo links dynamic lighting, electronic sounds, and poetic quotations as a unique source of dramaturgy through our newly commissioned piano and percussion works.
