Borrowed Landscape-Reykjavik unfolded at the local supermarket Bonus and was presented there on August 26 and 27 2013. The performance aims to highlight the unique reality that is the supermarket, to expose some of the rules and codes according to which it operates, and to put into question our personal shopping habits as well as the larger forces that shape our everyday behavior and experiences.
