Silent island is an exchange project between young people in Norway and Iceland.
In the summer of 2002 six Icelandic youths visited Andøy. Together with young people from Andøy, they went to the small island of Tinden in Øksnes. For three days, they managed without mobile phones, clocks, computers and TVs. They were far from people and lived in two old fisherman's shacks. They explored the particular transitions between sea and land, silence and isolation that the island reflected. On the island only they only used their senses. To document their observations they used pencil and notepad.

The audience got to see the results of this exploration in the shape of a 'wandering theatre' in the fourty meter-tall lighthouse in Andenes.

This summer the project continues in Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland.

The project Silent Island is created by the young Norwegian stage artist Katrine M.E. Strøm.
