Om Linda Blomqvist
Linda Blomqvist born in Stockholm, 1985 is a choreographer and dancer currently based between Brussels and Stockholm. Her work aims to expand the notion of choreography with a focus on alternative modes of production, process and practice from a speculative viewpoint taking various forms and expressions.
Linda studied dance at The Royal Swedish Ballet School 1995-2004 and at P.A.R.T.S 2008-2010. She has been active as a performer in various productions and is touring extensively internationally. In 2012 she joined Rosas where she is now performing in “Drumming”, “Rosas Danst Rosas” and the latest creation “Golden Hours (As you Like it)”. Since 2013 she has been working and touring with Mårten Spångberg performing in “The Nature”, “Epic”, “La Substance – but in English”, and “The Nature FR”.
In 2012 she got invited to participate in the cross-cultural European network TRYANGLE in Montemor where she presented “The Power of Horror”. Her work “Lucha Libre” and “Circle Lux 9” has been presented at MDT, Stockholm, Small Projects, Tromsö, PAF Performing Arts Forum, St Erme and RPS Rosas Performance Space in Brussels. 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. Linda is also a co-founder of the interdisciplinary artist collective Rhododdendron. Their video installation work has been exhibited in several venues in Europe.
