Coast Contemporarys program in Bergen is curated by Mei Szetu.

SCHLOSS by Artist Ida Ekblad presents a new performance by Veronica Bruce in collaboration with dancer Jennie Bergsli for Coast Contemporary. Their practice merge principles and patterns of different contexts, and create repetitive states that allows for new readings as you reach beyond fatigue. In the performance Soft, Interlude, Bruce and Bergsli explores performing vulnerability. Both in the sense of the individual sensitivities and the collective notion of bodies as a landscape.
The costume and scenography is made in collaboration with Karoline Bakken Lund and Eirik Sæther.

DJ Brut
We are in for a treat from lady eclectic electro. The local dance floor favorite will be warming up the party with an playful set of shamefully danceable tunes, and sprinkle of lesser known beats!

Bjørn Torske is a Norwegian producer and DJ from Tromsø.
Torske's debut release was the "T.O.S. EP" compilation where he appeared as Alegria and with Ole Johan Mjøs as Radikal Buzz. Torske and Mjøs then formed Ismistik and released 3 EPs on Djax, as well as collaborating with Rune Lindbæk in Open Skies and Volcano. Torske then moved to Bergen and continued Ismistik as a solo project without Mjøs, recording the classic "Remain" album which was released in 1995.
