Five theater performance scenes in On the Beach by Robert Wilson, Jerome Robbins Theater, New York
Together with Marcia Moraes, Robert Wilson, Philipp Glass, Hrafnhildur Árnadóttir aka Shoplifter, Gabriela Geluda and Jon Morris.

Inspired by the seminal opera Einstein on the Beach, which was originally created in 1976 by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass, and in celebration of its 35th anniversary, Robert Wilson selected five teams of emerging artists to re-interpret sections of this 20th century masterpiece. The scenes were inspired by five different sections of Einstein on the Beach. Four scenes and the Knee Plays are the sources of inspiration for this work. On The Beach celebrates a new generation of artists and their reactions to an opera that is widely recognized as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century. Egill and Marcia used animation and  installations with objects, working with singers, dancers, choreographers, rappel technique and actors to create the five Knee scenes.
