ALDA is an installation and an ongoing performance that exists on the boundaries between dance and visual arts. Inspired by women’s collective physical labour, the work uses repetitive motions and singing to make space for intimate female assembly, care and coalescence through movement, sound and material.

The project is initiated by choreographer Katrín Gunnarsdóttir in collaboration with designer Eva Signý Berger and composer Baldvin Þór Magnússon. The work is performed by a group of female dancers and is presented in exhibition contexts.
