Linh Le (full name: Linh Tuyet Le) was born in Aalborg in 1990, raised by Vietnamese parents who came to Denmark in the start 80s as boat refugees. Linh started to dance in her room out of anger. This is where she learned how to move and discovered how dance and performance can embody societal critique and uproar. Being a child of freedom fighters, Linh feels a strong connection to freeing oneself through dance, to cross boundaries and explore how the body and its shapes can transform into something that becomes unrecognizable and yet relatable.
One of Linh’s favorite things to do is to reset herself to a state of nothingness, to move hyper-slowly and experience the sensation of time and space dissolving, a sensation of that everything is possible, then imagining an environment and the transformation of oneself, of how the environment fluids into one’s body and then improvise with whatever is there.
The performative researches of Linh involve embodied experiences of unlocking forces and characters and the transformation when encountering new places. Linh creates images and sensations which are unearthly yet earthly, ancient yet futuristic. She aims for melting different temporalities and to create portals of new worlds embracing both sci-fi and mythological/divinely expressions.
Linh loves to experiment with all kinds of mediums within the performative field and is curious to learn and continuously develop her practice through cross-disciplinary collaborations. Thus, do not hesitate to contact if you find the works of Linh interesting and want to collaborate.
