Belinda og GyðaBelinda and Goddess
are dramatic, elegant and complicated creatures.
Fair features, fleshy, fuzzy and shiny.
They are wild with sinuous limbs and long necks.
Well behaved but unpredictable, wary and intellegent.
Conciderate, caring and erotic.
They are healthy, fertile and fun loving goddesses.

Costumes:  Jóní Jónsdóttir

“The work deals in a humorous way with women and mares.  Poise, charm, jealousy and friendship came into play. Belinda and Goddess is the first work that Steinunn and Sveinbjörg collaborate on and shows a strong choreographic character from both of them. Drama and humor were carefully intertwined in a unique way, where the movement vocabulary, which can be attributed to the movement of the horse, were used to make fun of the feminine nature.” (Margrét Áskelsdóttir, Morgunblaðið)
