SALVE REGINA

The performance

SALVE REGINA is a co-production between Oslo Dance Ensemble and Jo Strømgren Kompani. Both companies have their established distinctive character, but if you take the best of both and mix it, maybe the audience can have the best of both worlds? And maybe even more.

The performance SALVE REGINA embodies the belief that things will get better, and associate with the need for hope and relief in difficult times. The title refers to the Maria hymn which, after being written down in the 1100s, has been very important to our Western cultural history. In an era of confusion, doubt and increasing conflict level, it may be an idea to look back on what has helped people in earlier times. You do not have to be religious to see that the parts of the religions that are related to hope and relief, can make a difference.

SALVE REGINA marks new ambitions for Oslo Dance Ensemble. For the first time, a full-evening performance is produced with both the time and the will to immerse in a uniform expression. The collaboration with Jo Strømgren Kompani also means that the ensemble is launching itself internationally for the first time.
