FRÉTTABLAÐIÐ, 

  BROADWAY BABY

THREE WEEKS 

FEST

Watch it, hear it, read it, stream it. Do it all at once. We’re all plugged in and wired up to the news and its ticker-tape is ticking all day and all night. But is all this news good for us?

 

Breaking News is an hour long multimedia devised performance filled with puppets, pop-up sets, live soundscapes and evocative video landscapes. The piece is a journey into our intimate surreality that asks us: when does information become too much information?


Breaking News by VaVaVoom Theatre Company was premiered at The National Theatre of Iceland in October 2012 and re-opened at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2013.

 

Music by acclaimed Icelandic artist, Soley.
