Return of NUNA (now)

Posted on

The 3rd annual NUNA (now) festival is making its way back to Winnipeg for five consecutive weekends in April and May starting April 24 with a pretty nifty sounding opening party. It comes complete with a visual arts and performance component courtesy of, the Icelandic Love Corporation, Freya Olafson, DJ Magic and Asdis Sif Gunnarsdottir.

The NUNA (now) festival is geared toward celebrating the contemporary artistic and cultural connection between Iceland and our own home and native land. Some of this year's events include legendary singer/songwriter a.k.a "the grandfather of Icelandic Rock" Megas' very first appearance on North American soil. Catch this folk/art hero Thursday, April 30 at the Pyramid Cabaret with Baggalutur and The D. Rangers. The Keri Latimer Band (2/3 of Nathan) and Lay Low are also playing during the festival, along with several other musical acts.

You can also check out the theatre aspect of NUNA Saturday, May 23 at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Portage Place. Watch a staged performance of Surf, a play by Icelandic playwright Jon Atli Jonasson.

Check out the live event calender for a more detailed listing of what's happening each weekend during the festival.
