Linh Le (she / her) works with performative activism and fights for a just world for life on earth. At the moment, she explores the sensuousness and philosophy of species, making rituals for the diversity of life.
Linh Le is of a new generation of artists who with their own bodies are exploring the possibility of finding a balance between a growing desperation in a world of polycrisis and maintaining the belief in a different way of being human / species.
As a child of freedom fighters who came to Denmark as boat refugees from Vietnam, and as a witness to their struggles in Danish society, Linh Le is strongly called to free herself through dance, to challenge the norms, to transcend boundaries and explore how the body can act, transform and demand space for the less heard voices.
Linh Le is educated in Aesthetics and Culture from Aarhus University and Performance Design & Planning from Roskilde University. She is co-founder and member of the performance climate activist group Becoming Species which in close alliance with Extinction Rebellion and Embassy of the Species Copenhagen has made several performative actions in public space to amplify nature’s diverse voices.
Linh Le is also a member of Dance Cooperative, an artist-run platform and association with a physical work- and event space in Valby Copenhagen, organized by 14 local performance artists.
This Residency is funded with the support of: Embassy of Denmark Washington D.C.,The Consulate General of Denmark in Houston, Scan Design Foundation, the Danish Arts Foundation, the Cultural Arts Department in Austin and The City of Copenhagen.
