Close-Act (NL)

A group of tall, fantastic beings clad in red, accompanied by a band of merry drummers, stroll through the streets, striking just the right chord for the festivities ahead. These graceful beings swing their red flags and enormous fans over the crowd and the air is fraught with excitement, beauty and rhythm.

The Dutch company Close-Act Theatre has been active for almost three decades and been praised around the globe for their enchanting street theatre that sweeps the audience along into a world where anything can happen. Their dinosaurs from the show Saurus tramped around central Reykjavík during the opening of the 2018 festival, to the delight of audiences of all ages. The group now return with a mesmerizing event that is a must-see for everyone.

The ActRed performance in Reykjavík is part of the opening ceremony of the 2022 Reykjavík Arts Festival.
