Skin Deep

Translations: English

Black Widow and Iron Man meet on a balcony at a masquerade party and head for a dangerous game; are they friends or fows, are they lovers or adversaries – do they know each other or are they strangers? An actor ́s couple are lost in a play within a play within a play and use brutally clever language to hurt and destroy, seduce and fascinate, love, deceive, hate and tear down. The text is partly rhymed, like a long poem, touching some of the most important issues young people are facing today; the youngsters are torn between contrasting feelings of love, hate, sexual desire, dreams, and the eternal question about what is real and what is unreal. The play premiered at the Reykjavík City Theatre in 2018 and was hailed as “the most original new theatre work in years”.
