Norwegian premiere of THE MINISTRY OF UNRESOLVED FEELINGS
After several cancellations due to the pandemic, we are finally able to present THE MINISTRY OF UNRESOLVED FEELINGS in Oslo at The Norwegian Opera and Ballet.
Who do you turn to if you’re only capable of crying when you don’t want to, if you get angry with dustbins, or if bread gives you panic attacks?
The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings has scarce resources but an important mission. Its caseworkers are responsible for solving problems that no other agencies can remedy. The paper stacks in the incoming tray grow ever higher, but a surprisingly high number of applicants have their cases reviewed.
A delicious mix of absurd humour and poignant gravity is the hallmark of Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren. One moment we hardly dare look – and the next we’re in paroxysms of laughter. Last year his creation for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani – The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings – enjoyed enormous success. Although created for teenagers and young adults it was acclaimed by people of all ages.
The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings is the third piece Jo Strømgren created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, this time aimed at teenagers and young adults. Jo Strømgren has previously created the dance works Herzschmerz (2009) and Utkanten (The Outskirts) (2011) for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
