HERO is a critically acclaimed one-man comedy based on the saga of Bárður Snæfellsás, the first settler of the Snæfellsnes peninsula and his family of humans, trolls and vultures.
The style of the performance is energetic and exaggerated, where dozens of characters, as well as the audience itself, play a big part.
The show was directed by Víkingur Kristjánsson, one of the founding members of the Iceland´s most prestigious theatre company, Vesturport.
