Time: 8 p.m.

Lunch / Hádegisverður is a performance devised collaboratively by an international group of 8 artists. Created in the small village of Kaukonen, Finnish Lapland, with an experimental and non-hierarchical method, it emphasizes the importance of the encounter.

The performance emerges from the interplay of light, sound, movement, and of course - food. It is a response to both the place in which it was created and the place where it will be shared - the site of a new encounter.

The performance is planned to be suitable for touring and adaptable for different spaces.
