Dates & times

They attract and distract,
Absorbed in bold encounters.
Playfully blurring dynamic feminine undertones, 
They morph.
Suggesting, defying, pushing boundaries and expectations. 
A serious parade in all its absurdity.


Blue Carousel is a satire on seduction. A power play of expectations and associations, collapsing and climaxing into a series of transformations. Bysheim and Patry work with humour and repetition as a choreographic tool to comment on how the body is viewed, objectified and categorised.

In a study of the seductive body, based on humour and bird mating dances, they indulge in all-consuming moments. Through a series of performative situations, they revel, twist and defy expectations through layers of fiction. They present soft and unforeseen confrontations, while insistent movements are woven together with transformative techno beats.

A playful and suggestive work that questions and challenges what is socially accepted vs the absurdity in the unexpected, while deconstructing the binaries of the masculine and feminine.

Flashing light and smoke will be used during the performance.
