The Society of Lost Souls

Det Kongelige Teater


Is the afterlife orderly and well-planned? Are the inhabitants as confused as we are? And what problems – if any – afflict the multicultural society of the great beyond?

Norwegian choreographer and stage director Jo Strømgren has the definitive answer to the great question: What happens when life ends?

The Society of Lost Souls is a poetic, humorous and physical work of dance and performance art created and narrated by the pitch-dark voice of multi-talented Jo Strømgren. He takes us to a fascinating Gothic world of ghost houses inhabited by dancing apparitions. Every night, the residents relive their death in agony and search for meaning. Not the meaning of life but the meaning of death.
