?

“A uniquely well composed show, emotional without being corny and necessary to see.” - Fréttablaðið ????

 

Petra, by Reykjavík based performance group Dance For Me, is a unique, heartfelt and funny contemporary theatre work about the life of theatre director Pétur Ármannsson’s great-grandmother who collected so many stones it lead to her owning the largest privately owned mineral collection in the world.

 

“Petra is perhaps the biggest surprise of the theatre (Tampere, Finland) festival performances I saw, and manages to wrap home-madeness, Icelandic fairy-tale tradition, and the magic of theater in to a unique entity.” - Sylvi.fi, Katri Kekalainen
