Jo Strømgren is in-house choreographer at Oslo Opera House. His performance The Hospital shows three Icelandic nurses entertaining themselves by carrying out their duties on each other. This is not a particularly healthy activity, but it helps the time to pass in the absence of any patients. A military helicopter is incessantly circling over the building, which may be an explanation of why no-one is knocking at the hospital doors.
"The Hospital is physical theatre at its very best: daring, dark, unpredictable and charged with compressed intensity"
- The Guardian
