Dancer | Choreographer 

Lisa Colette Bysheim is a dancer and choreographer from Bergen, Norway. Her work centres around language; playing with ambiguous text and choreography to open and expand the experience of navigating through layers of meaning. She has a MA in Choreography from KHIO, Oslo and her works have been shown at venues including; The Norwegian National Ballet (Oslo), BIT Teatergarasjen (Bergen) CODA International Dance Festival (Oslo), Galleri F15 & Momentum (Moss), Officine Forte Marghera (Venezia), Spazju Kreattiv (Malta), Theaterforum Kreuzberg (Berlin). 

As a dancer, Bysheim has performed works by Janne-Camilla Lyster, Mia Habib, Yaniv Cohen, Ida Frømyr Borgen, Roskva Yasmin Andersen, TGO//4332, directors Helena Wik and Lene Therese Teigen. She has also developed improvisational works in collaboration with dancers, visual artists and musicians.


Her interests lie in the transformation and deconstruction of structures and systems, moving them into new unknown territories. She is curious to explore ideas of the centre, hierarchy and control by turning the concepts around, in their structural and systematic forms by allowing all parts involved to interact equally and connect non-sequentially.

In 2020-21 Bysheim was a part of The Norwegian National Ballet´s initiativ "Kvinnelig Koreografisk Satsning" and was commissioned to create a duet premiering at CODA International Dance Festival 2021.
