The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings

You can never believe what is happening here!

Creation by Jo Strømgren

The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings has scarce resources but an important mission. The 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. From the applications: “I'm waiting for surgery on my defective tear ducts. I am a sensitive person. But nobody understands, because I can’t cry. What kind of dance and music can solve my problems?”

A delightful mix of absurd humour and painful sincerity is the trade mark of Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren. One minute he has us cringing and barely daring to peer between our fingers, and the next we are aching with laughter. He has now created "The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings" for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, aimed at teenagers and young adults. The creation is a part of GöteborgsOperan Skapa dans; GöteborgsOperans Danskompani's creative activities for participation and learning.

Jo Strømgren has previously created Herzschmerz (2009) and Utkanten (2011) for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings will also have a performance on 7 June as part of The Göteborg Opera Dance Festival which you can learn about here.
