Armann Einarsson performs Dance for Me as part of the nuna (now) Icelandic festival on May 23 and 24. 

Music school principal Armann Einarsson walked into a modern art museum in Copenhagen and watched a short video of a male dancer.

​”I watched it at least three times. I found it so beautiful to see an older guy dancing,” said the 48-year-old Icelander.

A few years later, he persuaded his daughter-in-law, Brogan Jayne Davison, a choreographer, to teach him modern dance and create a dance for him.

Welcome, friends, to the eighth annual Icelandic-Canadian arts convergence known to all-and-amma as núna (now). Eight is of course a very special age – the time of life when one asserts a little independence, stakes a greater claim on selfhood and walks just that tiny bit further away from móðir og faðir when strolling at the mall.
