About The Experiment

In The Experiment (2010) by Jo Strømgren Kompani, four patriotic women have joined a secret experiment as volunteers. Even though the laboratory is warm and cozy, and at times filled with nice music, there is a growing concern - something is not quite right. Actually, something must be completely wrong.

More about The Experiment

The Experiment by Jo Strømgren Kompani followed the style of earlier productions such as The Society, The Hospital, and The Department where geopolitical issues were shrunk to fit within four walls and a small group of individuals.

Nonsensical language and cultural references were all related to a well known and powerful state in Eastern Europe. But content was rather universal since horrors in secret grey zones most likely happen anywhere in the world.

Touring: Norway, Denmark, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, Belarus, France, Spain

Supported by: the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs/MFA (travel grant/performing arts).
