YES, by emerging Swedish choreographer and dancer BamBam Frost, is a cascade of pleasure, sadness and dreams of possibilities. Yes yes yes. This could be something.
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.
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 off from her interest in social dances and pop cultural phenomenons 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.
