Jo Strømgren Kompani has been granted 4 new years on base funding from Arts Council Norway. We are very happy about this, as it secures all the exiting projects we have ahead of us.
A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football will tour Jordan and Palestine in late April. We will visit both the Amman Contemporary Dance Festival and Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival, and do altogether 4 shows, as well as workshops, in Amman, Ramallah and Jerusalem. Very exited about being a part of these festivals.
After standing ovations and great audiences during our Dutch tour in February, we are very much looking forward to the Belgian premiere of A Dance Tribute to Ping Pong in Aalst at De Werf next thursday.
Also, we are very exited that The Painter is playing two performances this week, at the Oldenburgisches Staatstheater.
This week JSK will be performing THE KITCHEN at The Norwegian Opera House, JSK`s home stage in Oslo. THE KITCHEN premiered November 2013 followed by overwhelming reviews. “Tempo, timing and interactions are gleefully precise, and the performance is filled with energy and enthusiasm,” stated the Norwegian national television (NRK) after the premiere. Bring your kids and experience the energy yourself.
This week we are embarking on a dutch tour with A Dance Tribute to Ping Pong in collaboration with Van Baasbank & Co. We will visit Eindhoven, Alkmaar, Groningen, Arnhem and Tilburg in the following two weeks. Our coproduction with Ulrike Quade Company, The Painter, is also touring the Netherlands in February, starting off at the POPARTS festival in Amsterdam on the 9th of February. Be sure to catch one of our performances if you are in The Netherlands!
