The Society
Jo Strømgren Kompani (Norway)

"The Society expertly straddles the fragile line between humor and horror . . . comedic touches worthy of Peter Sellers; and a witty stream of nonsensical language."
Gia Kourlas, The New York Times

"Instead of starting with politics itself, I start with a teabag."
Jo Strømgren, director of The Society
