- About the artist
Linda Blomqvist born in Stockholm, 1985 is a choreographer and dancer. 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’s been working with artists such as Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Mårten Spångberg, Alexandra Pirici, TG Stan, Cristina Caprioli and Dora Garcia to name a few.
Linda initiated Indigo Dance together with Emma Daniel, Anna Gaiotti and Adriano Wilfert Jensen upon an invitation to curate the “Dance week” at PAF during the Summer University 2014. Indigo Dance is a platform for artists with manifestations such as study circles, a festival, tumblr and publication (The Indigo dance magazine – They come at dawn) These various manifestations aim to find alternative modes of knowledge production and exchange implying peers teaching peers in the name of curiosity, experimentation and realization of concepts. It holds a space which is supportive and allowing, striving to build a strong discourse around our practice and field.
