Dear subscribers, colleagues and friends all over the world,

Please get the latest news from the MADEIN membership. They all bare proof of massive creative and innovative mindsets. When the theaters are closed many artists turn to nature and site-specific surroundings in their quest to meet with their audiences. Others go digital in waiting for the doors to once again open for the theatergoers. Yet others focus on extensive plans for the future.

When all live performances were cancelled due to the outbreak of Covid-19, Jo Strømgren Kompani (JSK) had to rethink how to reach out to their audience. The company created CORONA SESSIONS, a series of dance films based on improvised sessions between acclaimed Norwegian dancers, actors and musicians. Every Friday since April JSK releases a new film at their Facebook page. The viewers can pay a voluntary amount, and any income will support the production and artists involved in the project.

The concept has been viewed more than 26.000 times so far, and the company continues to create new sessions. Last week Dansens Hus in Oslo (NO) opened for audience to view CORONA SESSIONS in cinema format. On 13-14 June 2020 the company went one step further and opened the stage for audience to view the improvised session live.

JSK CORONA SESSIONS is co-produced by Dansens Hus, Oslo (NO), and in collaboration with their long-time partner Millimedia. Watch the sessions here.
