Lisa Colette Bysheim is a dancer and choreographer based between Oslo and Bergen, Norway. 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 presented nationally and internationally.
She has performed works by Yaniv Cohen, 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. She has produced three cross-disciplinary dance performances combining performance, live music and film; ME(et) YOU (2016), Fugue -fju:g/ (2016), Ekko I (2017), and two dance films: Variations of Suspension (2018), Like We Were Together (2018) and an interdisciplinary exhibition Performativity Beyond the Body (2018).
Bysheim recently premiered her latest solo work Ekko II (2019) co-produced by BIT Teatergarasjen and Kunstgarasjen in Bergen. 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. Bysheim's performance creates movement that pushes boundaries of physicality and explores contrasting shifts in energy. Lisa Colette Bysheim is a graduate from Trinity Laban, School of new dance, Oslo and Ballet West.
