About


Salvör Gullbrá is an Icelandic theater and performance maker, stand-up comedian and activist. She completed her Bachelors’ degree in Theater and Performance making at the IUA in 2019. She has been one of the organizers of the Icelandic SlutWalk, worked in journalism, interned at Schaubuhne theater as well as writing, directing and producing her own work. She is also part of the four women standup group Funny Gurlz. Her ongoing project, Krakkaveldi/Kidarchy, started as an idea to form a children’s political party on stage, but has since expanded to being an ongoing performance project in collaboration with around 20 children aged 8-12, and counting. Kidarchy was the recipient of the Childrens Culture fund grant in 2019 and was part of Reykjavik Dance Festival’s program in 2019, as well as landing her in the ASSITEJ Next Generation program in 2019.

Salvör is interested in creating Utopias on stage, challenging the world we live in in various ways. Anarchism, child activism, feminism and plastic flowers are common themes in her work.
