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, music videos and art institutions. During the spring 2018 she debuted with the piece SORRY.

BamBam’s work is in constant transformation and dialog with the now. There is a strong interest for social dances and pop cultural expressions. She plays with the thought of these as carriers of time, structures and context with which she through choreography can change the narratives of. Inspired by sci-fi BamBam uses choreography as a tool to imagine and propose alternatives.

dream beam

We dream, but we have no clue about what this is yet. Practicing superpowers, real and fictional. They were dancing with crystal skin reflecting light all over the room. That was nice. Another day we practiced empathy. Thoughts of how certain powers, or perhaps enhanced skills, can create alternative structures and affect the way we function as a group are present. But everything we know now will change. So be patient, more will come. Think of us as we are trying to crack this code.

YES (2020)

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. 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 BamBam Frost’s second work, following her debut with SORRY in 2018.
