Is it Friday already?
- The National Theatre is doing its best to prepare us, and all you wannabe Scandinavians, for a long, dark and depressing winter with its fun, fun, fun version of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt (surprisingly not called Peer Gyntson but Pétur Gautur). They’ll be showing it at The Barbican in London in February, but do try and get a ticket on Saturday or Sunday.
- In The Reykjavik Art Museum, a group of “young” artists (born 1968 or later) are having their big day out with the installation show The Apostles Clubhouse. Now isn’t that exciting?
- Thomas Bangalter, one half (we don’t know which) of Daft Punk, is in town for the Reykjavík International Film Festival, and will be DJing publicly for the first time in ten years at Nasa on Saturday. We wonder: will he be harder, faster, better and stronger?
- If you can’t get past the VIP line at Nasa, or simply prefer the local to the global, try the all-singing, all-dancing DJ Mokki Litli Show at the tiny (and entirely unrelated to Kofi Annan) bar Kofi Tómasar frænda. Fun starts around half past two.
- Finally, the wind is turning and will be coming from north. Look up from your drink and you might see the Northern Lights, free of charge. Now, how about that?
And hey — let’s be careful out there.
