Opening Nov 4, 2020 at MDT, Stockholm.
Inspired by the thought of making the revolution irresistible and the work and journey to social justice as pleasurable as possible* BamBam explores the pleasures found in social dances and pop cultural expressions. And joy to be in, produce and allow constant change. It’s a dive into what has been and what is – letting choreographic practices of pleasure guide us in the work of radically imagining where we want to be.
YES is BamBam Frost’s second work, following her debut with SORRY in 2018. It’s almost a solo, we call it Solo with a guest star.
