Dance performance at Moderna Museet
Through a series of dance performances that will take place within ‘Fly in League with the Night’, Lydia Östberg Diakté and BamBam Frost explore the meeting between provocation and play, tenderness and violence, greatness and madness.
Inspired by pop cultural and sport phenomenons they build scenarios that are pushed to their limit, to see what happens when they tip over. They move through various extremes, pull, twist and turn to propose alternative ways of being together.
Lydia Östberg Diakité and Bambam Frost invite you to follow and experience them as they move through the exhibition.Place: in the exhibition Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Fly In League With The Night at Moderna Museet

BamBam Frost is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm. Frost works from a intersectional feminist perspective and her work is in constant transformation and dialog with the current times. She has a strong interest in social dances and popcultural phenomenas in relation to the times and contexts they arose from.

In the work she insists on pleasure and fiction as a compass to imagine and shape choreographic proposals for change.
