Apocalypse now

"One day. Something happens. In Kirkjubaejarklaustur."
"Where?"
"Kirkjubaejarklaustur."
"What?"
"Something."

"Kirkjubaejarklaustur", the Belgian radio drama directed by Sebastian Dicenaire, lets us wander about in windy, hostile Iceland, together with Sven who had been left there by his friends. We get lost in a world oscillating between dream and nightmare.
"Weather flash for the citizens of Kirkjubaejarklaustur: Only 10 minutes until the end of the world. Last call."
"Kirkjubaejarklaustur" is a radio play made of vocal sounds only, a play as absurd and delirious as the apocalyptic world it depicts.
