lunga-1st-flyer-net

The BETA program that ended last week was an incredible month, and thanks again to the 17 students that participated and to all the people around who helped us.

We are now fully immersed in preparing the ‘fall 2014’ program where we, due to visa issues for international students, have changed the duration of the program from 17 to 12 weeks so that there is no problems for international students who wish to attend.
This means that the fall program is from 15th of September to 7th of December.
This also means that the price has dropped from 731.000 ISK to 528.000 ISK (3400 €).

The first applications have already arrived and the deadline for applying is June 25th. We are looking forward to reading them all and to welcome the next team of students in Seydisfjordur at the LungA School!

Last week we said goodbye to our lovely students, a fantastic group of amazing individuals who, together with us, embarked on a journey of possibilities and adventures. This group is now able to look back, remembering the month we spent together in Seyðisfjörður, a journey that gave us all new friends, new insights and plenty of new memories that will last for a life time.

Thank you to everybody who participated in making this month possible, thank you to everyone who came to our exhibitions and extra special thanks to the 17 individuals who dove in to the unknown, trusted in us and made this month so magical.

With LOVE,

the LungA School team

Final Beta-Exhibition and Workshops

Our BETA program ended with workshops in video art and scenography.

Some of the students worked with the possibilities of scenography and built their own personal space. The other students learned about video making, cutting scenes and sequences together, creating amusing and strong short videos.

At the end of the week we held a final exhibition showing the work from the workshops as well as some the students own work.

You can see some of the pictures in this post.

The rest of the pictures from the workshops can be seen here

BETA Week 4

IMG_3740

We have now entered the last week of our BETA program. It has been three crazy weeks with life journeys, workshops, dancing, sounds, silence, field trip to Skálanes, and much more. We look forward to this final week of BETA.

This last week will feature two workshops, exhibitions and a final farewell party.

One of the workshops is in video art. It will be led by Hrund Atladóttir. In the workshop, video as a media will be investigated through different artistic and creative approaches. The surroundings, things being found, things being hidden, will be used to make the ideas of the students take form. Read more here

The other workshop called Space, Light and Time will be held by Börkur Jónsson. It will investigate stage design through many different media, such as theatre, film, fine art and photography. See more here

On Saturday April 5th at 15:00 we will have the final exhibitions of the LungA BETA program. All are welcome! Afterwards we will celebrate the end of BETA at Kaffi Lára.

We have returned from a fantastic weekend at Skálanes. Goddur joined us and we had an interesting session about truth and beauty, black metal, and sweat lodges. Quite fitting since a lot of time was spent in the sauna. We were blessed with beautiful weather, northern lights and loads of reindeer.

You can see some of the pictures we took at the bottom of this post.

IMG_4303

Í síðustu viku var boðið upp á tvær listasmiðjur, annarsvegar Hljóðlist undir stjórn Curvers Thoroddssen og danssmiðja undir stjórn Sögu Sigurðardóttur.

Við höfum sett inn nokkrar ljósmyndir hér, og þú getur séð meira á facebook:

Dance

Sound

Saga og nemendur hennar unnu með spuna og tjáningu í dansinum. Í smiðjunni fóru þau í hlutverk skíðastökkvara, headbangers og ballett dansara. Þau losuðu um, bráðnuðu og breyttust í þyrna. Í lok nemendasýningarinnar voru gestirnir virkjaðir í dansinn.

Curver og nemendur hans könnuðu möguleika og sögu hljóðsins í gegnum spuna, musique concrete, heimildir, spjall, skúlptúra og margt fleira.

Last week Curver Thoroddsen and Saga Sigurðardóttir held workshops in Sound and Dance.

We’ve uploaded a few of the pictures here, and you can see the rest on facebook:

Dance

Sound

Saga and the students worked with expressing themselves through dancing and improvisation. In the workshop they became ski-jumpers, headbangers, and ballet dancers. They would lose themselves, melt away and grow spikes. In the end of the final performance all the guests became part of the dance.

Curver and the students explored the possibilities and history of sound through jam sessions, musique concrete, documentaries, talks, sculptures and much more.
