Jo Strømgren kompani:
Going for a spin with Jo Strømgren
Roulette is often seen as a metaphor for life. After all, we can never know for sure what our choices will lead to. In Jo Strømgren’s new theatre production, both life itself and the stage twirl and spin.
Lots of rooms
In Roulette, we are witness to a rotating stage with lots of rooms – and lots of people, each with their own hopes and dreams. Regrettably, the stage stops at unfortunate moments and situations, which has dramatic consequences. The performance mercilessly portrays personal relationships, society around us and perhaps also the complicated geopolitics of our time.
Roulette is the second collaboration between the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre and the Jo Strømgren Kompani. The first was the performance The Door, which won no fewer than four national Lithuanian theatre awards and was performed at the Oslo Opera House in 2018. The performance has delighted audiences in performance spaces around the world and continues to be performed. The common factor in these collaborations is the use of actors who both dance and speak gibberish, in perfect keeping with the Jo Strømgren Kompani’s classic signature.
