'The allure of an independent fringe has always had a pull on me. Smaller, more intimate, more community, more heart. That’s what I like. That’s where I want my work to be seen. RVK Fringe exudes this in both its vision and audiences.
Icelandic people are some of the friendliest people in the world. They have acclimatized to an often-harsh landscape with an open and warming attentiveness that cultivates a naturally safe environment to be around.

I believe one of the most human of instincts we have is to love. To find someone to belong to and have them belong to you. Love in all its guises subjugates our reason for being. That is my opinion. That is my truth. Almost every benchmark in my life thus far has been bookmarked with someone I have belonged to, someone I wanted to be with, or someone who was no longer mine. Pinnacle moments seem to include someone who broke my heart and someone who mended it again. So once again, i'm back to the blueprint of making a new work and i'm adding the cornerstone that precedes over all of my artistic inventions. Love. But, unlike my previous work, i'm looking at something a little closer to home.

'The smell of sweaty pavements in the burning sun and the myriad of crumbling grandeur and modern bustle lay the scene for everyday life. People push and pull, they shout and they laugh, they almost run you over and they seem to have no notion of time keeping, but their charm is utterly magnetic. Their gesture, warmth and touch are resplendent.'
In this blog, Artistic Director Anthony reflects on our recent residency at Interno5Start in Naples and the current stages of L’uomo R+D.
