The Ólafsson-Gunnarsdóttir family posts a lot of family photos of vacations or festivals or just enjoying a good family time. Both Lovísa and Ólafur love their daughters. However, Ólafur, in particular, loves to sing with his daughter.
His daughter (most likely Helka) can sing a song after she has listened to it only twice. And of course, Ólafur also loves to sing. Also, during an interview, he mentioned that his favorite room in his house is his daughter’s.

IDC is Iceland’s national touring dance company and is based in Reykjavik City Theatre in Reykjavik. IDC not only tours all over Iceland but also around different parts of the world. And as a part of IDC, Lovísa has traveled to different parts of the world.
Her relationship with dance changed a little bit in recent years (2018) when she suffered from an injury. Although she is not dancing like before, she has found other innovative ways to dance and use to body to convey stories.
Her most recent and probably the most popular work, When the Bleeding Stops, is the result of that change. When the Bleeding Stops is all about menopause. Lovísa started to be interested in menopause when she started to enter middle age herself.
