Despite it’s small stature, Iceland is packed with theatres and performance venues. The Reykjavik City Theatre, which opened in 1989, is a great example of this. Showcasing work from predominantly modern playwrights and authors, featuring young artists interested in dealing with hot topics and more challenging issues, the Reykjavik City Theatre offers visitors an edgy alternative to the more traditional works on offer at the Icelandic National Theatre. That being said, the theatre still showcases a number of classical plays annually, providing a well-rounded programme of performances.
In addition to a varied programme of plays, the Reykjavik City Theatre hosts a number of performances by dancers, musicians and even solo artists. The variety of offerings at the Reykjavik City Theatre is supported by a troupe of 24 actors. Plus the theatre has a reputation for collaborating internationally. Reykjavik City Theatre is easily reached, as it’s located near the heart of the city.
