‘Full of breathtaking surprises’
‘Seriously fun and wacky’
The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings has scarce resources but an important mission. Its caseworkers are tasked with solving problems that no other authorities can remedy – through dance. Despite the growing backlog of paperwork, a surprisingly large number of people have their cases assessed.
A delicious mix of absurd humour and poignant gravity is the hallmark of Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren. One moment you hardly dare look – and the next you’re doubled over laughing. Jo created this humorous and sad piece for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani in 2019.
Jo Strømgren’s previous creations for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani are Herzschmerz (2009), The Outskirts (2011), and The Fort, which saw its world premiere in 2020 as part of the dance double Out of Time cancelled because of the pandemic.
