Avgang 2021: If Only

If Only is a choreographic work by Lisa Colette Bysheim, and it is her graduation project in master choreography.

The performance emerges in the encounter between movement, sound and voices weaving a bodily and textual landscape. The intersection of verbal language and choreography is probed by five performers, playfully exploring the construction of language - and how it moves.

If Only opens up a space for possible meanings and connections to arise in multi-linear ways.

Words diverge from the pathways of the body, uncontrollably, in chaos, into the seeping sounds of whispers from the space. Images and associations dissolve, rearranged as the voice takes over, mapping a terrain of voice and movement, while trying to contain the collapse.
