Iceland - landscape and legends

Rating: 5/51 users

This Iceland course is the equivalent of the chain course 'In Search of the Sunset, the Azores'. Both parts of the 'European area' are located on the westernmost border of what we may call Europe. This Mid-Atlantic Ridge offers a fascinating view of an active volcanic landscape. In addition Iceland offers a view of Europe's 'Arctic border'.
The Icelandic Saga's deliver a rich contribution to the (northern) European literary heritage. During this course we will study and 'express' these old Icelandic saga's. Traveling along the western and northwestern coast of Iceland we will experience and study the landscape and use this as a backdrop to 'express' the saga's in various forms: theatre/drama, painting the backdrops (visual arts), singing etc. The full performance will be transferred into a video (using tablet computers).
