IIS

IIS

IIS is a project about ice as a connecting factor in the mienskip (community). After all, as soon as the temperature drops below zero, all of us jump into action to join forces and ensure that everyone can access the ice. On ice-skates, on sledges, on foot or otherwise. But ice rinks have also become a symbol of the climate crisis. IIS invites the Fryske mienskip (Frisian community) to come up with and create cultural manifestations surrounding ice rinks for the summer of 2022. On a small and largescale. In order to mobilise together for a sustainable and liveable future.

The kick-off will be Tryater’s Under Wetter show in Wergea, a large-scale outdoor performance about wintery days. On a beautiful ice rink, actors, dancers, musicians and extras will portray the story of the Kingma family. Under Wetter is an ode to Fryslân’s numerous ice rinks, which – despite warmer winters – still operate. It’s a performance about desires and traditions, full of drama and celebration.
