New Spring in the Dead of Winter launches its webpage


New Spring in the Dead of Winter is an interdisciplinary performance project made by artists from Montréal, Canada, during their residency at Arts Iceland in Isafjordur from may 1st-28th which will then be presented in Iceland and Montreal. Sparked by the Icelandic texts derived from songs sung by our great-grandmother Ingibjorg Gudmundsdottir (1891-1994), this project arcs through 4 generations of women.

In New Spring visual worlds by Zuzu Knew parallel music made by Syngja, both infused by the same themes of personified nature and mythic archetypes. Their reinterpretations have become an original performance; compositions and songs with Cello, electronics, synthesizer and voice with costumes and projections that combine to create an immersive experience, both visceral and surreal.

Syngja has performed around the world, most notably for the Société des arts technologiques (SAT), Festival TransAmériques, festival MEG, M for Montreal, Suoni Per Il Popolo, Pop Montreal, Mono No Aware (Brooklyn), and BeauHaus (Brussels).

Zuzu Knew has made costumes for Tanya Tagaq, Laakkukuk Williamson Bathory, Klo Pelgag and Tommy Kruise. She has made interdisciplinary work for MIX NYC, Koumaria in Athens, Greece and NXNE, Toronto.
