Áki Ásgeirsson, Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir, Páll Ivan frá Eiðum BOREALIS - Talk: Radical Hospitality   Upstairs  Artist Talk

free entrance

Over the course of the last year artists and composers Áki Ásgeirsson, Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir and Páll Ivan frá Eiðum from the Icelandic S.L.Á.T.U.R. collective have been considering the transactional nature of music performance. Through events in Iceland and Norway they have been investigating the Host/Guest relationship inherent to hospitality and how this can be used to interrogate a way of creating culture outside of its existing infrastructures. Having spent time researching this city and its culture they have devised a Radical Hospitality project that will pop up around the festival, and culminates in a secret performance. Existing outside of the normal festival structure, this project aims to disconnect from the normal programme, and engage people wherever they meet it. Hear them in conversation with Artistic Director Peter Meanwell about what the project means.
