A roundup of things to do in Reykjavík this weekend, prepared by your
under-the easy-to-influence editors.
- Tonight and tomorrow, The Good Company Theatre Group makes fun of Vikings and Jews at the Hafnarfjörður Theatre. Don’t worry, it’s probably all very politically correct.
- For your weekly (and free) fix of origami, karate, haiku, manga, otaku, karaoke, and sake, go to the Japanese Culture Festival at the University of Iceland on Saturday afternoon. Turning Japanese? We really think so.
- This weekend you can also see President Bongo of GusGus (seen here, having just slipped on a banana peel) make a photo exhibition of himself at the 101 Gallerí on Hverfisgata. Break it down (pdf)
- And if a breakdancing DJ isn’t your cup of tea, there’s always Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri at the Nordic House. She says things like “You make north. You encounter the unknown. You can wade through the Artic Sea to the lighthouse.” Confused? So are we.
But, hey — let’s be careful out there.
