NRK screening of CLOSED

Saturday 6th May our brand new dance film Closed will premiere on Norwegian television. Closed is a new dance movie by Jo Strømgren and Stein Roger Bull, following up the Rose d’Or winning The Neighbour. Featuring cellist Truls Mørk and collaborating dance companies 420people (Prague) and KAGE (Melbourne).

A closed café hosting a cellist playing Zoltan Kodaly’s Cello Sonata Op.8 and four individuals with a peculiar agenda. Reality goes off piste for half an hour.

Not only is the film in the hands of competent producer Nordic Stories, backed by solid budgets and distribution agreements, it is also a rare occasion to see world renowned cellist Truls Mørk as a film character. The dance is created collectively by no less than four choreographers, Vaclav Kunes, Natasa Novotna, Gerard Van Dyck and Jo Strømgren, who all also appear in the film.

See the trailer of the film here.

Closed will be shown at NRK2 as part of the program Hovedscenen Saturday 6th May at 21:10, with a repeat on Sunday 7th May at 18:10. In addition to NRK, Closed is already sold to SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finland) and Czech TV. Distributed by EuroArts Berlin.
