Starting tomorrow, PS 122 presents Jo Strømgren Kompani (JSK) in The Society, a full-length work about a society of sworn coffee drinkers who discover and question the significance of a used teabag. Last June I saw Strømgren’s thrilling Sunday, Again, created for and performed by Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, but this is JSK’s first appearance in New York City. The Norway-based company produces contemporary dance and theater, and Strømgren is known for his candid, in-your-face approach to performance. His note to all audiences: Don’t panic, the performers do not even know what is being said on stage.
