Jo Strømgren Kompani is now preparing the 2010 production, ”The Experiment", on the theme of human test lab secrecy. The show is taking form as a grotesque but yet poetic portrayal of the horrors submitted by volunteers. The premiere is in Rakvere, Estonia on the 3rd of May with a following tour through the Baltics, Poland, Russia and Belarus. The first Norwegian stop is at the Bergen International Festival on the 7th and 8th of June.
Jo Strømgrens dancefilm, The Neighbour will officially premiere on the 11th of March, during the dancefestival Tanzwelten 2010 in Braunschweig. It will show as a part of the dancefilmprogram running alongside the festival at the Staatstheater Braunschweig.
THE NEIGHBOUR is a film about man and woman, about single people, about the chance to start over again, about chances that are long gone. It is also a film about how music affects us, and how we affect music. It is a coproduction between JSK and Nordisk Film and TV, and features the dancers Line Tørmoen and Dimitri Jourde, and the world renowned pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.
Due to limited availiability, THE SOCIETY is only on tour for two months this year – to Norway, Sweden, Spain, and Australia. The busy Jan/Feb schedule covers Sandvika, Stavanger, Stockholm, Malmö, Málaga, Madrid, Albany, and Perth.

Det har vært debatt i media etter at ekteparet Oddrun og Nils Terje Aarsland fra Vigrestad Indremisjon i Rogaland gikk til pressen med anklager om ”banning”, ”blotting” og ”stripping” i forestillingen A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football. Vi tilbyr herved noen faktaopplysninger for elever, foreldre, lærere og arrangører involvert i vår turné for Den Kulturelle Skolesekken.
