Drag-S煤gur the Musical

馃幍Guys in short dresses and girls with moustaches…馃幍

Would you expect anything else from this talented group of drag queens and kings?

Drag-S煤gur is back at again with an amazing show set for tonight, Saturday, January 11th at 21.30! What kind of musical is this, you ask? We chatted with G贸g贸 Starr (Sigur冒ur Gu冒j贸nsson) & B贸b贸 Starr (Bjarni 脫skarsson) to get all the tea, ready to spill.

What type of musical should we expect? Parodies on classics? Original Drag-S煤gur material? Lip-syncs or vocalists?

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淵ou can expect anything and everything at this show! There will be the traditional drag lip-syncs, but also choreographed dance numbers, live singing, live music and a lot of laughs. We鈥檙e mixing together musical classics and making a big fun show out of it.鈥

So, Anything Goes, quite literally! If Sound of Music, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Wizard of Oz, or any of the RuPaul鈥檚 Drag Race musical episodes tickle your fancy, you鈥檒l want to catch this. There鈥檚 sure to be some tongue-in-cheek references to all your favorites and more! You may even see some Icelandic musical references in there too for some good ol鈥 royal heritage.

How long has Drag-S煤gur been at Gaukurinn, and is this the first musical you鈥檝e done there?

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淒rag-S煤gur started back in November 2015, and although there have been musical numbers on stage throughout the years, this is the first official musical-themed Drag-S煤gur. So naturally, we鈥檙e extremely excited to camp it all the way up. We highly recommend that you catch the happy-hour and delicious Veganaes food (until 21:00) and have a gay ol鈥 time at Gaukurinn.鈥

Vera Schtilld aka Sigga Eyr煤n.

Who should we expect in the cast of this musical?

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淭he evening is hosted by Faye Kn煤s, the human encyclopedia of musicals. Along with her we have a bunch of other performers including myself, G贸g贸 Starr, as well as Jenny Purr, Lola Von Heart, Chardonnay Bubl茅e, Milo de Mix, Aurora Borealis, Ska冒i, Yan Nuss Starr, Turner Strait and special musical guest Vera Schtilld aka Sigga Eyr煤n, singer extraordinaire! As you can see, this is a packed show filled to the brim with talent!

After the show, the amazing Mighty Bear will DJ to keep the party going for a sensational Saturday night.鈥

Cats.

Are we going to see anything from Cats?

G贸g贸: 鈥淥h god, I hope not. Cats is simply not good. There, I said it.鈥

We heard Drag-S煤gur is a member at the Reykjav铆k Tool Library. What鈥檚 going on there?

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淲e鈥檝e been building our sets, backdrops, and decorations for Drag-S煤gur at the Reykjav铆k Tool Library鈥檚 DIY Center since Pride last year. We just finished making giant glittery musical notes for the event, and the entire process was made possible in just one afternoon with the help of Anna, the founder, and her amazing service.鈥

Drag-S煤gur. G贸g贸 Starr.

Well, we all know the backstage at Gaukurinn is justtttt big enough for queens to change panties in without getting them in a bunch. So, can this space be a bigger back stage for Drag-S煤gur鈥檚 work?

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淎bsolutely! As a member you only have to bring the materials you鈥檙e working with and don鈥檛 have to worry about owning the tools or the space and such, it鈥檚 a genius idea. Check out the Reykjav铆k Tool Library if you haven鈥檛 already!鈥

Ok. We鈥檙e pumped for this musical now, but what else has Drag-S煤gur got up it鈥檚 sleeves for 2020? Tell us more!

G贸g贸 & B贸b贸: 鈥淥ooh mama, we have fabulous guests coming our way and fantastic new shows to share with the world. On February 14th we鈥檒l have a lovely Valentine鈥檚 show with a special guest all the way from the UK; Crystal Lubrikunt herself, the lip-sync assassin! On March 13th we鈥檒l have a David Bowie tribute, because who doesn鈥檛 want to see drag queens in space? Then on April 3rd we have our biannual Disney show extravaganza!

      Omnom Chocolate is an Icelandic craft chocolate company based in Reykjav铆k. We produce handcrafted chocolate from organic cacao beans sourced ethically and sustainably. We’ve developed direct relationships to create premium chocolate with fine flavor cacao beans.

      Our creative flavors are carefully crafted by meticulous chocolate makers. The cacao beans are roasted, winnowed, ground, and refined into melty-smooth chocolate.

      Omnom’s process is one of constant exploration, invention, and experimentation. If it doesn’t please us, if something isn’t absolutely delicious, there’s no reason to be doing it. So, we always start with our taste buds and follow our instincts. Our team searches for the finest ingredients in the world and new ways to improve chocolate. This obsession with knowing where our ingredients come from has led us around the corner to dairy farms in the Icelandic countryside and all the way to rainforest cacao farms of Nicaragua.

      In only a few short years, we’ve grown from our 50 sq. m. petrol station space and become an award-winning chocolate maker. Now, with our headquarters in 101 Reykjav铆k, our chocolate is sent out around Iceland and all over the world.

      At the end of the day, our goal is to make chocolate.

        Blue Lagoon
        - One of the 25 Wonders of the World

        Named by National Geographic as one of the 25 Wonders of the World, the Blue Lagoon is a shimmering expanse of warmth, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Its unique geothermal seawater
        comes from 2.000 meters within the earth where seawater and freshwater converge in a tectonic realm of porous lava and searing heat. Propelled by extreme pressure, the water ascends to the earth鈥檚 surface, emerging enriched with silica, algae, and minerals鈥攖he elements that endow Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater with its radiant, healing properties.

        From its humble beginnings in the shadows of a geothermal power plant, Blue Lagoon has evolved into a world of wonder, now encompassing two hotels, three restaurants, three
        geothermal lagoons, a subterranean spa, a renowned line of skin care, a thriving research center, and a wealth of spa and refreshment facilities.

        Achieving harmony with the volcanic landscape, the lagoon and its surrounding architecture embody the unification of the man-made and the natural, and adhere to the highest principles of sustainability.

        The Blue Lagoon. A wonder of the world. A world of wonder.

          脥sey skyr
          - once tasted never forgotten

          Our Story
          Once upon a time, 1,100 years ago in fact, Nordic settlers began arriving in Iceland. They brought with them the skills and knowledge for producing skyr. As time passed, the know-how and recipe for this nutritious food slowly faded out elsewhere in the Nordic region. Luckily, the Icelandic skyr-making tradition continued.

          For centuries, Icelandic skyr formed a cornerstone of the national diet, helping to keep people strong in living conditions that were often harsh. On family farms countrywide, it was the women who nurtured this dairy and passing on both the recipe and the original Icelandic skyr cultures from mother to daughter.

          脥sey skyr builds on this remarkable legacy. It was some of those very same women, the recipients of their mothers鈥 expertise, who, around 90 years ago, taught Icelandic dairy scientists the art of skyr-making. The production process is more high-tech these days, and the quality standards more rigorous. However, the basic recipe and the use of original cultures to ferment the skimmed milk remain the same. Protein rich, fat-free, creamy and delicious 鈥 脥sey skyr is as relevant to consumers now as it was all those centuries ago.
          This is our secret and you are in on it

          You can read more about 脥sey skyr on our website.
