So Sorry

Pop Culture Packed in Pink Plastic

BamBam Frost has been inspired by all the music videos on MTV that she and her generation grew up with. At that time dancing and movement were affected by those videos. Today we are affected in the same way but now by pictures and videos in social media feeds. In this show the aesthetics are inspired by music videos and live concerts of famous female artists.

It goes like a wave through the body, spreading softly through the head, neck, back and further down the legs. Together with dancers Mari Carrasco and Lydia Östberg Diakité, choreographer BamBam Frost treats us to a dance collage of pop culture packed in pink plastic.

- You know when you feel that it has to be done, it's time, says BamBam Frost about So Sorry.

By studying dances, expressions and aesthetics in music videos and live concerts by mainly African American female artists within RnB, pop and hip-hop, she askes herself how popular culture lands in our bodies. Out in the real world, it's always about aligning yourself to different ideas about what a woman is and how your movements relate to the surroundings.

- You become an expert cameleon. There are guys here, so then we can't move like this, because then we will be sexualised, says BamBam Frost. In So Sorry the dancers push their bodies to the brink and examine the boundries of exhaustion, both physically and mentally. The show is intense, funny, swetty, where familiar dances are broken down and rebuilt.

BamBam Frost has previously collaborated with, among others, Marina Abramovic, Mette Ingvartsen, Paloma Madrid and Erik Linghede. Since 2008, BamBam Forst is a member of P*fect Dancecompany, who have done everything from organising vogue-events to dance research and Melodifestivalen.
