Salve Regina, our co-production with Oslo Dance Ensemble, premiered last Saturday at Dansens Hus, Oslo. Since then it has received great reviews from Norwegian critics. «Beautiful», «sensitive», «elegant», «powerful», «humorous» and «exceptionally rich» are some of the words used by the critics to describe the performance.
The choreographer Jo Strømgren shows with “Salve Regina” that he still has a lot at heart. He is as creative as he has always been, and with an intact ability to surprise.
A new work by Anja Garbarek and Jo Strømgren. Commissioned by Bergen International Festival.Premieres in Bergen 24 May 2018

The Hospital is physical theatre at its very best: daring, dark, unpredictable and charged with compressed intensity. The skill and courage of the performers is breathtaking.The Guardian, UK
Human and multifaceted, lighthearted and ironic, narrative with a dancer’s expression of character.Julius Ferraro, Phindie, USA
A wise tale about life, that sometimes is terrifying and grim, and sometimes merry and witty. Multidimensional.G?os Wielkopolski, Poland
A jaw-droppingly impressive production […] ‘The Writer’ is an excellent example of the immense possibilities of contemporary puppet-theatre.
