BamBam Frost, Lydia Östberg Diakité
immortal summit

immortal summit is a performance that stretches between ideas of greatness and delusions of grandeur. Two characters are bound to an immortal fate and trapped in an ambivalent reality where remembrance of humanity’s excessive behaviors is put on display. Searching for something different, immortal summit lives in the borderland of provocation and play, tenderness, and failure, asking questions of how to navigate one’s existence in a non-voluntary reality.

In immortal summit Lydia Östberg Diakité and BamBam Frost work with materials inspired by sports, gods and popular cultural icons. Studying the phenomena of iconization and the canonization of performance abilities, where impossible levels and high expectations are the new standard.
