Description

In 1810 a brave Scottish man named Sir George Steuart Mackenzie ventured all the way to Iceland with some pals. They went in search of adventure but found only scurvy. In this 40-minute show Icelandic comedian Bee Babylon takes you on a journey through this embarrassing period in Icelandic history: After the Vikings ruled the oceans and before her country collapsed the European economy. Back when the Danish were the worst, turf houses the best and old shoes were dinner.
