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.
YES is almost a solo, we call it a solo with a star guest.
- About BamBam Frost
BamBam Frost is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm, Sweden. She graduated from Stockholm University of the Arts, with a bachelor of contemporary dance spring 2013. In her work she has moved between the club scene, commercial work, the contemporary dancefield and art institutions. In 2018 she debuted with her piece SORRY.
SORRY (2018), SO SORRY (2019), and YES (2020) all take off 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. “immortal summit” and “choreographic conversation” were created together with Lydia Diakité Östberg and premiered fall 2020.
