Ásgeir at The Cedar

How do you follow up the fastest selling debut album in Icelandic history, a record that out-performed even national treasures Björk and Sigur Rós’ first releases? At first 24-year-old sensation Ásgeir, returning at last in 2017 with daringly electronic new album Afterglow, pretended to those around him that the heat wasn’t on, that the stakes weren’t high. “I used to tell most people that I didn’t feel any pressure,” he laughs now. “But I was lying. I didn’t want to go into that discussion.”

HORIZON: In Honour of a Lived Life

  • University of Minnesota Theatre Arts & Dance (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In this performance visiting performing artist, Ragnhild A. Mørch mixes childhood memories with her family’s stories – a jigsaw which stretches across three generations. A performance that shows how Norwegian-German history not only consists of broad political lines but of individual fate. And that it is the personal decision-making that decides which turns the road takes.

HORIZON is one element of Ragnhild’s two week visit to the University of Minnesota where she will work directly with students, educators, and community members.

Aurora at First Ave

It is as if pure magic runs through AURORA’s veins. Enchanting by name and by nature, there’s something decidedly singular and strange about this tiny Nordic musician with the massive talent. With an eye-watering 200 million+ streams and 500,000+ sales for her stunning 2016 debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, it’s hard to believe that the dynamic Norwegian singer/songwriter is still only 21, and AURORA is now pushing things forward like never before.
