Lydia Östberg Diakité and BamBam Frost (SE)

immortal summit / odödlig topp

Friday 16 February At 14:00 – 15:05
Black Box Teater

Searching for something different, immortal summit lives in the borderland of provocation and play, tenderness and failure, asking questions about navigating one's existence in a non-voluntary reality. Two characters are bound to an immortal fate and trapped in an ambivalent reality where remembrance of humanity's excessive behaviors is put on display.

In immortal summit Lydia Östberg Diakité and BamBam Frost work with materials inspired by sports, gods and popular cultural icons, studying the phenomena of iconization and the canonization of performance abilities, where impossible levels and high expectations are the new standard.
