Milkywhale - Birds of Paradise


Milkywhale is a brand new music project by choreographer Melkorka Sigríður Magnúsdóttir that dismantles the boundaries between a concert and a performance. Together with musician Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson they have created a series of pop songs, a visual trip through soundscape and choreography. This epic concert features trivial things like love, trampoline exercises, whales and white animals.
