Artistic profile

Kristján Ingimarsson is multitalented artist in the field of visual theatre. He is full of surprising and comic figures. His physical language is in constant development in a blend of mime, slapstick, acrobatics, clowning, dance and theatre. Stylistically, his theatre is characterized by high-energy, rhythmic sequences, surreal effects and comic as well as touching moments.  

Ingimarsson's performances typically take their starting point in twisted thought experiments about modern civilization in which a thesis is developed in flights of fancy into extremely funny insanity. Every performance is a new experiment, and a result of a close collaboration between artists from different disciplines as architecture, the visual arts, music, films, dance and digital media.

Ingimarsson is known as a sublime performer, but his work covers a wider spectrum. In recent years he has worked as a director of a number of site-specific projects in Denmark and Iceland, and created a series of ensemble works.
