IF ONLY is a choreography by Lisa Colette Bysheim that sits at the intersection of spoken words and choreography, exploring the relationship between language and movement. Five performers move through a landscape of: spoken words, microphone cords, sound and movement. The sound is amplified and transformed through microphone wires acting as a changing scenography. IF ONLY plays with the construction of language and deconstruction of meaning and linearity within spoken words and movement. 

It is Lisa Colette Bysheim´s graduating work from her Masters in Choreography at Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
