When Ólöf Ingólfsdóttir was gripped by the desire to return to the stage after a long absence, she was driven by a question: what are the stories her body has to tell now, after all the years of joy and pleasure, but also of injuries and aging? What poems have been brewing and are ready to make their way to the surface? Her body answered in manifold ways. And the result is the solo dance performance Seven Poems from an Unwritten Book of Poetry.


"The work was particularly powerful and feminine. The body stores memories in a different way than the mind, and Ólöf achieved a deep interpretation of women's connection or disconnection with their own bodies.“
