VaVaVoom Theatre's visual performance Breaking News was premiered at the National Theater of Iceland in October 2012 and was also a part of the off venue program at Iceland Airwaves. The show was nominated for Newcomer of the Year (VaVaVoom) and Music of the Year (sóley) at the Icelandic Performing Arts Awards this summer and was highly received by critics, including a five star review from Fréttablaðið daily "an absolute delight for both ears and eyes" (Elísabet Brekkan).

Breaking News has now been selected for Summerhall Theatre’s August Festival as a part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival on August 2nd - 26th, which is the first step in touring the show internationally. The Edinburgh Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world, where bookers, critics and festival directors travel to see new performances every year. The Fringe Festival offers great exposure, but the artists must fund their own participation. Therefore we reach out to you for support , so we can transport our set, props, puppets gear, instruments and ourselves!!

About Breaking News

Watch it, hear it, read it, stream it. Do it all at once. We’re all plugged in and wired up to the news and its ticker-tape is ticking all day and all night. But is all this news good for us? In Breaking News, VaVaVoom takes its audience into an inventive and original world of puppets, pop-up sets, live soundscapes and evocative video landscapes. This multimedia devised performance is a journey into our intimate surreality that asks us: when does information become too much information? Live original music performed by acclaimed Icelandic artist, sóley. 


,,The cherry on top is certainly the live soundscape created by Icelandic musician Sóley Stefánsdóttir as well as the beautifully crafted set design (...) Long story short, Breaking News is a witty, entertaining and lovely piece and a true visual delight.“ (Katharina Hauptmann, Iceland Review)

About VaVaVoom Theatre 

VaVaVoom is a visual theater company, based in London and Reykjavík. VaVaVoom was founded in 2011 by Sara Martí (director, actress, musician) and S. Sunna Reynisdóttir (puppetry and performance artist, musician) who met while studying at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London.  

VaVaVoom’s work ranges from puppetry and object theater, to stagings of contemporary plays, to devised physical theater. Drawing from a wide variety of influences we combine puppetry, text, animation, dance, music and innovative scenography with experimental storytelling.  

VaVaVoom is an interdisciplinary collective. Frequent collaborators include artists from a variety of backgrounds: film makers, video artists, musicians, dancers/choreographers as well as theater practitioners with a broad range of skills.

In 2011 VaVaVoom received the Tallinn Treff Festival awards for Hands Up!

Always wanted your very own house?  You can get one of those homely pop-up paper houses + a variety of other goodies if you pledge for our project! The pop-up houses have been authorized by a qualified architect so you could actually use it as a model to build a bigger version if this one becomes to small for you...


It took God a several days to create earth, we can understand that, creating an entire globe is extremely complicated and takes several days - also when it's made by mere mortals out of paper. You can get a custom made pop-up globe (signed upon request) + a range of other goodies if you support our project!



--- Icelandic description ---

Nýjustu fréttir var frumsýnt í Þjóðleikhúsinu í október 2012 og var einnig hluti af ,,off venue” dagskrá Iceland Airwaves hátíðarinnar í kjölfarið. Hætt var fyrir fullu húsi og var ákveðið að bæta við örfáum aukasýningum í Norðurpólnum í apríl vegna fjölda fyrirspurna. Sýningin fékk lofsamlega dóma gagnrýnenda og tvær tilnefningar til Grímuverðlaunanna; fyrir Sprota ársins (VaVaVoom) og Tónlist ársins (sóley). Nú hefur sýningin verið valin inn í Summerhall Theatre þar sem hún verður hluti af Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2. - 26. ágúst.

Hátíðin er ein stærsta listahátíð í Evrópu og stendur yfir í þrjár vikur. Þátttaka í hátíðinni getur skipt sköpum fyrir leikhópa sem vilja kynna sig á Bretlandseyjum og víðar í Evrópu, þar sem allir helstu leikhúsgagnrýnendur, framleiðendur og bókarar mæta á hátíðina til að kynna sérr framboð nýrra verka. Leikhópar þurfa hins vegar að fjármagna þátttöku alfarið sjálfir (hóst og þess vegna erum við hér!), en gera samstarfssamning við leikhús í borginni um sýningarrými. 

Nýjustu fréttir er án orða og getur orðið meðfærilegt í flutningum og hentað vel til að ferðast með erlendis og er vonast til að Edinborgarhátíðin verði stökkpallur fyrir frekari ferðalög.

,,VaVaVoom mun í haust halda með verkið á Edinborgarhátíðina og ætti ekkert að vera því til fyrirstöðu að Nýjustu fréttir fari sigurför um heiminn í framhaldinu – slík eru gæðin. Verkið er landamæralaust, þrungið merkingu, ádeilu og fegurð sem hefur djúpstæð áhrif á áhorfandann“. (Bergrún Íris Sævarsdóttir, Séð og heyrt) 


Nánar um Nýjustu fréttir

Nýjustu fréttir fjalla um samband okkar við fréttir á myndrænan og gamansaman hátt. Fréttir eru efniviður verksins í orðsins fyllstu merkingu, þar sem dagblað getur tekið ótal hamskiptum og jafnvel orðið lífshættuleg ógn. Sýningin var unnin í spunavinnu með öllum hópnum og þar fléttast saman brúðuleikhús, myndbandsverk, dansleikhús og lifandi tónlistarflutningur Sóleyjar Stefánsdóttur.

,,verk sem lætur engan ósnortinn (...) algert konfekt fyrir bæði eyru og augu (fimm stjörnur)". Elísabet Brekkan, Fréttablaðið

,,afskaplega fallegt sjónrænt listaverk, uppfullt af smáatriðum sem koma á óvart (...) ferskur blær í Íslenskt leiklistarlíf”. Ástbjörg Rut Jónsdóttir, Víðsjá


Nánar um VaVaVoom Theatre

VaVaVoom er nýtt myndrænt leikhús með bækistöðvar í Reykjavík og London. VaVaVoom var stofnað árið 2011 af Söru Martí (leikstjóri, leikkona, söngkona) og Sigríði Sunnu Reynisdóttur (brúðuleikhús- og sviðslistakona, tónlistarkona) sem kynntust við nám sitt í Royal Central School of Speech and Drama leikhúsháskólanum í London.

VaVaVoom hefur áður unnið sýninguna Hands Up! sem hlaut Tallinn Treff hátíðarverðlaun árið 2011. Um þessar mundir er unnið að undirbúningi fyrir nýja sýningu; tón- og sviðlistaverkið Wide Slumber sem verður frumsýnt vorið 2014.

,,VaVaVoom-leikhúsið er greinilega hópur með hugsjón. Það er fagnaðarefni. Ennþá dýrmætara er þó að þetta unga fólk kann vel til verka og býr hugsjónum sínum áhrifamikinn listrænan búning". Silja Aðalsteinsdóttir, Tímarit Máls og Menningar
