Gorri-Gorri (2000) is a production by Jo Strømgren Kompani: An orphan baby ends up in the hands of an engineer team specialized in academic education.
We follow him from infancy through different stages of educational process, until laboratory exodus into society as a seemingly successful grown-up. The result proves to be highly uncertain. Science may not match reality. Or the other way round.

Gorri-Gorri was a joint production between Jo Strømgren Kompani and The Norwegian Touring Theatre (Riksteatret). Lots of technical equipment, a huge set design, and a large number of performers and crew made this production rather shortlived, even though it did perform in approximately 25 cities in Scandinavia.
The mix of puppeteers and dancers opened new possibilities of storytelling and took the puppetry ambition of the company to a new level.
Touring: Norway, Denmark, Sweden
Gorri-Gorri by Jo Strømgren Kompani was supported by Arts Council Norway and the municipality of Bergen.
Gorri-Gorri by The Norwegian Touring Theatre/Jo Strømgren Kompani was nominated for The Hedda Award 2001 in best production category.
