The fascination regarding the north has something to do with the concept of periphery: far from civilization, big urban conglomerates, in the midst of inhospitable lands vexed by an inclement climate. The free spirits of thinking and making art gives birth to work of seductive beauty. 

The concept of “new” in the culture has a different quality, more primitive compared to elsewhere, and more free from the usual artistic trends. Iceland is the focus of the program,  THE MAGIC POWER OF THE NORTH. Iceland is known as the arctic outpost that manages to succeed without psychiatrists and whose belief in fairies is written in their DNA. Music by different composers will be performed, partly by the Ensemble Adapter and partly by the celandic Love Corporation, duo in the fairy scenery of Monte San Vigilio. Take the cable car to reach the Vigilius Mountain Resort and get spiritually closer to the Arctic. 

🍜At the end of the concert Stube ida at  Vigilius Mountain Resort will be open for a delicious dinner.
📎10€ cable car ticket included
