Do you remember the satisfaction of fixing things?
The lovely weight of a screwdriver in your palm?
The self-assured smile when skimming a user manual?
Well…those days are gone.Jo Strømgren
As reality is tangering theatre, illusion seems to become the new truth.
Perhaps this is where puppets can help us.
After all they are the masters of illusion.Jo Strømgren

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
The result is impressive ensemble work from four performers whose look of unforced, alert connection adds to the mystery and sadness.New York Times, USA
Tempo, timing and interactions are gleefully precise, and the performance is filled with energy and enthusiasm.NRK Kulturnytt, Norway
Human and multifaceted, lighthearted and ironic, narrative with a dancer’s expression of character.Julius Ferraro, Phindie, USA
A treat for the eyes and a wonder of human movement.The Bogotá Post, Colombia
A complete and utter success. I’d see it again in a heartbeat.The Gazette, Canada
There is a fast pace to the show and it leaps merrily through time and place. It also gives you plenty to think about, which makes it far more than just a comedy about the theory of evolution." (5 out of 6 stars)Politiken, Denmark
A jaw-droppingly impressive production, an explosive performance, a heartrending story of love, misguided patriotism and betrayal: ‘The Writer’ is an excellent example of the immense possibilities of contemporary puppet-theatre. (5 stars)Venue, UK
Stylish, stylized, alternately graceful and gauche, bleak and bemused, laced with often inscrutable layers of metaphor and meaning.Philadelphia City Paper, USA
