BS/BF is a fantasy forest and an alternate reality in the form of a dance performance. It is made of dancing, hypnotic music and the colour blue.

BS/BF is an environment where lights, sounds and dances with no clear place outside of the performance, blend into a mutually unraveling logic.

The initial inspiration for the work has been a photo book BLÅ SKOG/BLUE FOREST (self-published, 2009) by artist Morten Andersen. The book offers a rich imaginary environment, completely different and indifferent to the city surrounding the reader.

As a performance BS/BF is alike, both the book and the dance performance function as portals to something different and changing.

BS/BF is a continuation of the collaboration between Kautto, Timo Kaukolampi, Jenni Pystynen and Anna Torkkel, which began with Station to Station to Station in 2019.
