On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Norway-based dance artist Lisa Colette Bysheim.
How do you find your personal style? How do you know what kind of work you’d like to create? Lisa has one answer: be curious. Join us on this episode as Lisa dives into finding your style, switching your focus, dealing with mistakes, and continually learning.
Lisa Colette Bysheim works within the field of dance and performing arts. She is based in Bergen, Norway presenting her work nationally and internationally. Her artistic practice spans from creating her own work, performing for others to collaborative creations. To date she’s been involved in several dance projects for film, gallery, stage and site specific works. She was recently a dancer in Roskva Yasmin Andersen´s premiere of Underneath during Oktoberdans 2018 co-produced by BIT Teatergarasjen in Bergen, Norway.
She has performed works by Yaniv Cohen, Roskva Yasmin Andersen, TGO//4332, Helena Wik, and developed improvisational works in collaboration with dancers, visual artists and musicians. In 2018, Lisa Colette co-conceptualised Performativity Beyond the Body with curator Kristina Melbø Valvik, a photo series and cross disciplinary exhibition exploring the relationship between architectural structures and the body. The exhibition will be displayed at Tag Team Studio Bergen December 2018.
In her artistic work she is concerned with the body, exploring how sensations, emotions and energy have the potential to open up a deeper understanding of the physical potential in movement. She is inspired by the body, working with what is intimate, raw and honest in a physical form. To create movement that pushes boundaries of physicality and explores contrasting shifts in energy.
