In this moving production, the audience creates the show together with the actor Guðmundur Felixson reading Finn-Ole Heinrich’s award winning text to Sarah Nemtsov’s music. Text and music interweave, with music turning into text, text into music. Each performance is recorded and afterwards, the recording is uploaded to a server. The audience is given a code to access the recording. In this way, every single performance is unique; a living, ever-changing piece of radio theatre.

Adapter is a German-Icelandic ensemble for contemporary music based in Berlin. The core of the group consists of a quartet with flute, clarinet, harp and percussion. Adapter stays in touch with the latest developments in the differing scenes of contemporary creation - maintaining a progressive, authentic and powerful style.
