About the event
Movement | Text Practice:
Lisa Colette Bysheim will share her practice of working with text, voice and improvisation. We will talk and dance at the same time, layering tasks and intentions on top of each other — resulting in longer playful improvisations. We will systematically work with opening up associations to words and their meaning, moving through a landscape of fragmentations. We will explore how language is constructed, moves and transforms by playing with the sound of words/voice, and how this affects physicality. This will be done alone, in duets and group constellations.
Lisa Colette Bysheim is a dancer and choreographer from Bergen, Norway. Her work centres around language; playing with ambiguous text and choreography to open and expand the experience of navigating through layers of meaning. She has a MA in Choreography from KHIO, Oslo and her works have been shown at venues including; The Norwegian National Ballet (Oslo), BIT Teatergarasjen (Bergen) CODA International Dance Festival (Oslo), Galleri F15 & Momentum (Moss), Officine Forte Marghera (Venezia), Spazju Kreattiv (Malta), Theaterforum Kreuzberg (Berlin).
Her interests lie in the transformation and deconstruction of structures and systems, moving them into new unknown territories. She is curious to explore ideas of the centre, hierarchy and control by turning the concepts around, in their structural and systematic forms by allowing all parts involved to interact equally and connect non-sequentially.
Her latest choreography “In-Betweenness” was commissioned by the Norwegian National Ballet, premiering October 2021 during CODA International Dance Festival. As a dancer, Bysheim has performed works by Janne-Camilla Lyster, Mia Habib, Yaniv Cohen, Ida Frømyr Borgen, Roskva Yasmin Andersen, TGO//4332, directors Helena Wik and Lene Therese Teigen. She has also developed improvisational works in collaboration with dancers, visual artists and musicians.
