Don’t miss Northern Nights choreography for fireworks by Sigga Soffia on the 23.september at 22:00 at Barceloneta. Northern Nights is new dance performance by Sigga Soffía inspired by the ever-changing nature of Iceland.
In the performance Northern Nights the audience gets to experience choreography in its purest form. The human body is removed from the equation and the only thing left is light- drawing movement in the sky and thus creating the structure of the piece. The audience is given space to experience the beauty of movement, the power of simple forms, the nuances of colours, weight and the atmosphere of rhythms.
And just like the long silent dark nights in Iceland where the daylight is only 4 hours, the aurora borealis light up the night leaving people gazing up to the sky, Sigga Soffia brings the same atmosphere into her fireworks shows.
In “Northern Nights” people are given the opportunity to find a piece of mind watching the dancing lights while standing together with thousands of people, reminded of the power and beauty of the weather and volcanos, dynamic waterfalls and the silent cold winter nights.
From 2013-2015 Sigga Soffia has choreographed Icelands biggest fireworks spectacle transforming it into a theatrical performance where the sky is the stage and the light is the dancer. Using ground fireworks, shooting from rooftops of historical buildings like the National Theater and the House of Customs in the city centre of Reykjavík she has managed to bring the audience into the show. Her trilogy of fireworks was later transformed into a stage performance for the National Dance company of Iceland.
Did a project in Amsterdam/Roosendal choreographing the duch- champion of indoor skydiving. Had a lot of fun making choreography for “a flying man” a fun challenge and even more interesting to try out the wind tunnel to understand the physicality of what is possible - and push it.

“Vodafone collaborated with choreographer Sigga Soffia. This is the first time that the audience of iceland are asked to look at a fireworksshow as artwork” …”The show was without question dance! The buildup, slower rhythm and the fireworks seemed to stay longer in the air, like every explotion was given time to shine….it was an amizing to experience the excitement of more than 80.000 people and probably the people of Iceland will not settle for anything less than an artisticly directed fireworksshow in the future. The danceperformance Eldar was an glorius art-event that will be remembered” - Simon Birgison theatercritic for DV-newspaper 2013
“Sigga Soffia received the DV Cultural awards 2013 for her first firework display. Most interesting dance performance of the year introducing the public to elements of choreography and sparking interesting discussions on dance in the Icelandic cultural scene.”
