Oct 08, 2022, 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM GMT+2

Sangens hus, Kaasbøls vei 14, 6510 Kristiansund N, Norway


The workshop will be based on principles and methods that Lisa used in the creation process of In-Betweenness which will be presented at the In2It International Dance Festival on 7th October 2022. Together we will work with various improvisational exercises and principles from the performance. We will work in duets, challenging and supporting each other in a continuous exchange of weight, power and manipulation. Through attempts and insisting we will push physical boundaries while trying to find balance. The workshop is led by Lisa and Max in English.


Lisa Colette Bysheim (1991) is a dancer and choreographer from Bergen, Norway working interchangeably with the materiality of language, choreography, movement, text, sound, scores, and meaning. She has a MA in Choreography from National Academy of the Arts (2021) in Oslo and her work has been shown at; The Norwegian National Ballet, BIT Teatergarasjen, CODA International Dance Festival, Galleri F15 & Momentum, Officine Forte Marghera (Venezia), Malta Dance Festival, Spazju Kreattiv (Malta), Theaterforum Kreuzberg (Berlin).

In her work she explores the transformation and deconstruction of structures and systems in language and social codes. A recurring interest in her artistic work is to investigate how language, text and movement together can form multi-linear narratives with underlaying themes of gender equality, push & pull, and soft power. As a dancer, Bysheim has performed works by Janne-Camilla Lyster, Mia Habib, Yaniv Cohen, Ida Frømyr Borgen, Rom for dans, Roskva Yasmin Andersen, TGO//4332, directors Helena Wik and Lene Therese Teigen.

Max Wallmeier (DE/DK) was educated at DOCH in Stockholm and is currently finishing an MfA in Choreography at the Danish National School of Performing Arts. He worked for choreographers such as Yvonne Rainer, Luísa Saraiva and Runa Norheim and as a member of Weld Company in Stockholm.  

As a maker, he is interested in the subtleties of asking for and paying attention while raising questions concerning progress. In his current research In the Wake he invites several collaborators to create duets with a focus on reversibility as a movement principle and composition strategy. He works in an ongoing collaboration with Maia means, in which they explore choreographic strategies to book- and dancemaking.


The workshop 8. oct at 16:00 - 17:30 is for the age of 16+ and professional dancers
