"Allra veðra von" is a new circus show where the circus art is used to examine the man's connection to the weather. From the beginning, the weather has been the biggest fate of life in the Arctic, but with modern technology, cars, housing and community building, the weather has ceased to have such a direct impact on our lives. However, the whole culture of Icelanders is permeated by the effects of this first and last topic, and the current vision of the future requires that we face the weather and the connections we have with it.
The language of circus art is a pictorial and captivating form that reaches a wide audience, regardless of language. Acrobatics, risk, laughter and humor, poetic images and acrobatics intertwine stories of humans and weather.
