"Who are these women, these swans?" asks Ásgeir Helgi Magnússon. "Why are they there? How does it feel living in a pond?" These simple yet enigmatic questions are at the crux of what he and Cameron Corbett are in the midst of asking as they deconstruct Swan Lake. Meeting in Studio 2 of Dansverkstæðið, the two are in the process of researching a new approach to the canonical ballet, specifically in purpose of creating a segmented piece for the graduating class of Iceland's Academy of Arts' contemporary dance department.
