A Norwegian dance theater company with a large, global distribution
JO STRØMGREN KOMPANI (JSK) was founded in 1998 and from its base in Norway it has grown to become one of the most successful independent groups in Scandinavia.
The company has been touring more than 60 countries so far, and around 150 performances take place annually both in large national theatres and small alternative venues all over the world. JSK’s home stage in Oslo is the Norwegian Opera House, where Jo Strømgren is Choreographer in Residence
Our style is characterized by a peculiar mix of dance and theatre, with a distinct and often very physical humor combined with darker, political undertones. Another trademark is the extensive use of nonsensical language, and in the recent years a playful use of voiceover. JSK offers a standing repertoire of 10-12 different performances, covering a broad range of genres. Variations of dance theater is our most typical form, but we also have pure theater performances and puppet performances. JSK also offers performances for young audiences.
No matter what form or genre, all our performances are designed for smooth and flexible worldwide touring and can be adapted into almost any language.
Jo Strømgren Kompani is also known for our inspiring workshops, and we offer a wide range of workshops for all levels, be it dance or theater, or even administrative ones.
