Circle LUX 9
Linda Blomqvsit arbetar med utvidgade föreställningar om koreografi, och söker alternativa former av produktion, process och praktik utifrån ett spekulativt perpspektiv, som leder till varierade former och uttryck.
Till IMIR kommer hon för att presentera hennes solo Circle LUX 9 där hon söker uttryck som går bortom en social föreståelse av dans och performance. Vad kan dansen var i sig själv?
Circle LUX 9 renders the body as raw material that can attain different qualities, capacities and affects. It strives to shift subjectivity and neutralize the social body as we know it. It dissolving cultural and social properties at the same time as it playfully merges and utilizes its different expressions without ever wanting to belong to a specific identity.
Circle LUX 9 is a perpetual transformation of the body and the space and the relation created in between, passing through different spaces, evoking intimacy and imagination it moves between landscape and display. It’s s an intensification of the presence which leaves traces and anticipates the future in an ongoing loop. It’s an exhibition of the body in time and space. Circle LUX 9 proposes the concept of a “magic circle” as a place where temporary worlds within the ordinary world can occur, dedicated to the performance of an act apart.

Linda initiated Indigo Dance together with Emma Daniel, Anna Gaiotti and Adriano Wilfert Jensen on an invite to curate the “Dance week” at PAF during the Summer University 2014. Indigo Dance is a situation based – liquefied shapeshifter that has so far been a workshop, a festival and a tumblr, which aims to find alternative modes of knowledge and art exchange implying peers teaching peers in the name of curiosity, fresh undefined ideas and territory, experimentation and realization of concepts.
