Out of time

Dancing with time.

Creation by Jo Strømgren and Christine Gouzelis & Paul Blackman

Fortet, by Jo Strømgren

It’s just another day for the Canadian Mounted Police – if it wasn’t for the fact that all the horses seem to have escaped. Chaos reigns supreme and nothing is as it seems. Or is it? 

The works of Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren are synonymous with absurdity, irony and unexpected twists – always underpinned by a sharp social critique. His previous works for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani have earned praise such as “world class”, “spot-on” and “pure genius”. In this production he plays around with boys’-own literature of the 1950s, mixed together with imaginative choreography and film-inspired music.

Co-production with the Norwegian Opera and Ballet.

Continuim
Creation by Christine Gouzelis and Paul Blackman

Athens-based choreographers Christine Gouzelis and Paul Blackman run Jukstapoz Company together. The duo’s works are rich in contrast, ranging from the serious to the playfully absurd, with chaos and harmony as central themes. They surprise the audience with new perspectives and imaginative atmospheres. 

In this work for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, the choreographers explore the concept of time: "'Continuim' evolves around human natures ability to adapt within forever changing circumstances. In honouring beauty, vulnerability and destruction, the dancers are continuously interrupted by the unstoppable force of time. Time is our playground, as we try to re-make or unravel history."

Aided by an intriguing set design, the dancers intertwine different occurances, allowing us to relive episodes, explore alternative chains of events and rebuild fragmentary memories. 

Introductions 

Don’t forget that you can attend an introductory presentation on the Small Stage before all dance performances (except premieres and guest performances).

Spoken presentations shed light on the work and the choreographic process. They start 1 hour before the performance and last about 20 minutes. Free admission, limited seating. 

Physical introductions are held on selected occasions. Here you will gain a deeper insight into the performance by watching and trying out dance moves with dancers from the company and other visitors who share your curiosity. Physical introductions start 1 hour and 15 minutes before the performance and last around 45 minutes.
