Presented by two of Icelands most splendid actors, the 75 minute theatrical comedy show „Icelandic Sagas – The Greatest Hits“ is a roller coaster ride through Iceland’s literary heritage. In English!
The Icelandic Sagas are true stories of the first settlers of Iceland – Well, Icelanders say they’re true. Everyone else says: Get out of here!
But everyone agrees they are brilliant tales of worthy men and feisty women from a thousand years ago. Stories of viking raids abroad and blood-feuds at home. Passed down to the generations and preserved on calf-skin manuscripts they are the crown jewels of Icelandic culture, amazing stories of the vikings.
Step into the world of Hallgerdur Long-Pants, Gunnlaugur Serpent Tongue, Killer-Glum, Harald with the great hair-do, Mjoll the-biggest-of-all-women-who-were-not-giants and Leif the Lucky who found America. Never heard of them? Come and get to know them all in Icelandic Sagas – The Greatest Hits. Be thrilled, entertained and intrigued – and find out what it really means to toss a pair of blue pants into an Icelanders face – really.
