núna (now) hits the ground run­ning on May 12 with a fan­tas­tic new series of Ice­landic and Cana­di­an events, tak­ing place in Win­nipeg and Gim­li through May 21. Don’t be one of those who hears about the fun lat­er and cries bit­ter tears about miss­ing it — make your plans to attend núna NOW!

A few words from the cura­to­r­i­al committee

It’s an impor­tant and excit­ing year for núna (now): our fifth. Once again we’re pleased to offer you some thrilling new art from Ice­land in almost any dis­ci­pline you can name, along­side com­pli­men­ta­ry work from right here in Canada.

Every year núna (now) changes in some way – it would be less inter­est­ing both for you and for us if it did not – and to mark our half-decade of exis­tence, this year we’ve con­cen­trat­ed our pro­gram­ming like the Minute Maid does her lemons, into one full and spec­tac­u­lar week of North Atlantic frolic.

This year’s treats include a com­pelling new dance work, or per­haps we should say A Provo­ca­tion Pure and Sim­ple! It’s not to be missed; nor is the spe­cial­ly-com­mis­sioned work being per­formed on the same pro­gram by two Man­i­to­ba dancers. We have Miri -bus­tle-shak­ing music from Ice­land with local stars Roy­al Canoe; a series of rock doc­u­men­taries chron­i­cling the unique Reyk­javík scene; the always-pop­u­lar lec­ture from aca­d­e­m­ic Lau­rie K. Bertram, and of course our sin­gu­lar good­time par­ties and receptions.

We have no end of fun assem­bling these pro­grams for you, and will be very pleased if you’ll join us for this week of won­ders. The Ice­landic art scene is so rich and spiky and true and beau­ti­ful that shar­ing it with our fel­low Man­i­to­bans, in Win­nipeg and in Gim­li, feels like the one good deed that will get us all into A?sgard. We’ll see you soon, at núna (now)!?
