THE WRITER appeared at the Bristol Festival of Puppetry at the Tobacco Factory and received a bucket of great reviews. “By far one of the most inspiring pieces of theatre of the year.” according to Total Theatre Magazine. “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.” as Venue put it and gave 5 stars.
THE BORDER premieres on September 1st in Tromsø, Norway. The production is a collaboration with Hålogaland Teater, one of the northernmost institutional theaters in the world. A love relationship reflects the classic border dispute, adding a geopolitical angle to domestic problems. Norway and South Africa is scheduled this Fall. International touring to follow in 2012.
JSK starts the fall season with a 5 days run of THE CONVENT at the Norwegian Opera House in Bjørvika, Oslo.

“A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football” is completing an adventurous football season with a two weeks tour of Russia, visiting the cities of Lipetsk, Tambov, Rjazan and Krasnojarsk, Siberia.
Jo Strømgren Kompani is visiting two beautiful and fascinating north atlantic islands this spring; Greenland and Faroe Islands.
14 years after its creation, A DANCE TRIBUTE TO THE ART OF FOOTBALL is bound for Holland and Belgium. These countries have seen various JSK shows earlier, most recently through intensive touring of DE SCHRIJVER. Now they have the chance to see a true original, which has been of inspiration to many other choreographers, done as it was in 1997 and still nowhere near any trends. The tour is managed by Baasbank & Baggerman.
Our Rose d’Or winning film THE NEIGHBOUR will have its first TV transmission on NRK1 Sunday 6th of March at 22:45. Schedules on other European TV channels will follow.
