BamBam Frost (SE)

YES
| Saturday 12 February
At 17:30 – 18:45
Tanssin talo - Dance House Helsinki / Pannu Hall

YES is a cascade of pleasure, sadness and dreams of possibilities. Morphing through a constant of what has been and what is. YES insists on fiction as a compass in the imagining of where we want to be. Working with water's transformative powers and the storm's revolutionary potential. Yes yes yes. This could be something. YES is soft, YES is dense, YES is tension and release, YES is too much and not enough. YES is everything you touch you change.

Artist / Company Bio

BamBam Frost is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm, Sweden. Frost works from an intersectional feminist perspective and her work is in constant transformation and dialog with the current times. SORRY (2018), SO SORRY (2019), and YES (2020) all take their inspiration from her interest in social dances and pop culture phenomena in relation to the times and contexts they arose from. In her work she insists on pleasure and fiction as a compass to imagine and shape choreographic proposals for change. Frost has a close collaboration with Lydia Ö. Diakité and their piece immortal summit premieres November 2021.
