The Sea Monsters in Akranes

June 4 at 17:15-18:15

What’s happening down by the harbour? Reports say that a trawler fishing just off the coast caught a huge unknown creature. Soon after, the engine gave out, the ship sent out a Mayday and was towed to the docks. While waiting for scientists to examine this strange beast, the public is given a unique opportunity to take a look. Have the sea monsters of our ancient tales come back and what message do they bring?

Reykjavík Arts Festival brings incredible creatures to Akranes harbour as Hringleikur Circus Company and Pilkington Props come together to create brand new, large-scale Icelandic street theatre for all ages.

The sea monsters won’t stop after the opening festivities - they will continue their journey around Iceland, appearing in four other places.

The Sea Monsters were commissioned by Reykjavík Arts Festival.
