Saga Land on stage at the Brisbane Powerhouse

  • Brisbane Powerhouse 119 Lamington Street New Farm, QLD, 4005 Australia (map)

Following a sold-out season in 2016, author Kári Gíslason and broadcaster Richard Fidler return to Brisbane Powerhouse to discuss their much-anticipated book on Iceland.

Join them for an evening of dazzling stories, sounds, and images featuring a gripping blend of family mystery alongside beautiful and bloody Viking tales, set in the starkly stunning landscape of Iceland.

The sagas, true tales of the lives of the early Viking settlers are among the greatest stories ever written, but the identity of their authors is largely unknown. Together, Richard and Kári travel across Iceland, through fields and forests, across streams and fjords, to tell these powerful, seductive tales in the places where they unfolded.

And… to find out the truth behind a tantalising connection between Kári and the greatest of the saga authors.
