Linda Austin By Jorge Izquierdo

Linda Austin

Linda Austin is a choreographer and performer based in Portland OR, where she is the founder/director of Performance Works NW. During her NYC years in the 80s and 90s, she performed at Danspace Project, PS 122, and MR Judson, among others. Awards include the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Merce Cunningham Award (2017), a 2014 Fellowship in Performing Arts from the Regional Arts & Culture Council, as well as Fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Oregon Arts Commission. Her work deploys movement, sound, text, visuals, and props to create non-linear, poetic performance laced with an eccentric wit, teetering on the edge between immediately apprehensible and resolutely mysterious.
