Welcome to an evening featuring two performances from the acclaimed Norwegian dance company, Jo Strømgren Kompani. The evening starts with The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings at 6.30pm, and ends with Salve Regina at 8.30pm.
Life is miserable. Yes, indeed. Where can we find comfort and relief from its misery? Salve Regina is a dance performance which acts as an associative journey through different eras. A fantastical time travel that anchors and agitates – through power and impotence, feudalism and individualism. The title of the performance refers to the Marian hymn which, for thousands of years, has offered comfort and hope to those who need it. And still, we need it.
