Gaflaraleikhúsið (The Gabler‘s Theatre)

The Gabler´s Theatre Company is a group of professional actors and directors running a small theatre in the town of Hafnarfjörður. The purpose of the company is to enhance the Icelandic theatre scene by running a progressive theatre that looks for fresh ideas and new directions in plays and productions focusing on plays for children and their families.

The artistic vision of the Gabler´s Theatre Company is to create theatre productions that are powerful, funny, tragic and full of life and where actors and artistic directors will be given full artistic control of the productions. Ideas and techniques from Clowning, Devised Theatre, Grotowski and Brooks wil be used indiscriminately. The works of new Icelandic playwrights will have priority in the selection of works and authors.
