BamBam Frost “So Sorry”

A dance collage of pop culture packed in pink plastic.

The choreographer BamBam Frost, along with the dancers Mari Carrasco and Lydia Östberg Diakité, invites to a playful and intense collage of pop culture’s expression and dances.

In the work with So Sorry, BamBam has studied mainly African American female artists in RnB, pop and hip hop. She has looked at expressions, dances and aesthetics from music videos and live concerts and asked herself what the popular culture we consume means to us and how it feels in our bodies.

The dancers push their bodies until they can’t do it anymore and see where the exhaustion takes them both physically and mentally. They embrace, but also relate critically to, the popular culture they and many others consume daily. With pumping music, dressed in gray body socks, in a room packed in pink shiny plastic – the dancers invites you to an intense, fun and sweaty performance in which familiar dances are broken down and rebuilt.

So Sorry is a tour version and a development of the show Sorry that had production residence at Riksteatern and premiered at MDT in the spring of 2018.
