Lin Da (they/them) is a Helsinki-based choreographer and dancer whose work focuses on ecology, feminist values and being in relation to unreadiness. Lin Da explores relationships between people and their vicinity in dialogue between non-human and human bodies. The spaces, places, and other entities that are present (non-human and human) suggest directions, rhythms, and qualities for research. They also suggest diverse socio-cultural meanings.


During the past years Lin Da has collaborated especially with choreographers and professionals of the music field. These encounters have given rise to artistic works (Mouthpiece, Mad House Helsinki, 2020), discussions about artistic processes as well as the open sharing of artistic practices (S-projekti, 2016-).
