Daniel Linehan’s choreographic work is intent on softly obscuring the line that separates dance from everything else. He approaches performance-making from the point of view of a curious amateur, testing various interactions between dance and non-dance forms, searching for unlikely conjunctions, juxtapositions, and parallels between texts, movements, images, songs, videos, and rhythms. Linehan first studied dance in Seattle and then moved to New York in 2004. He has been Associated Artist at deSingel International Arts Campus 2017-2021.

Working at the crossroads of theatrical presentation, exhibition-based contexts, and public art modalities, Michael Helland makes creative interventions aimed to foster social connectivity and help communities face the dark uncertainty of the future. His research-in-action RECESS (Ritual Experience Concept Event Spa Show) was awarded a Flemish research grant, resulting in an immersive performance at Abrons Arts Center in New York, a pop-up urban sanctuary at ZSenne art lab in Brussels, and a series of workshops featured at Gropius Bau in Berlin. Helland has appeared in the works of Maria Hassabi, Isabel Lewis, Tino Sehgal, Daniel Linehan, Xavier Le Roy, Eleanor Bauer and Marina Abramović among others. He is a yoga teacher since 2019 and he holds degrees in Dance and in Community, Environment, and Planning from the University of Washington in Seattle.

Tending and Tuning
“From theater to gallery and beyond, we explore performance as a hybrid medium to discover the edges of bodily consciousness, shared physical presence, and sense of place. We return to the fundamentals of the body in motion: breath, circularity, vibration, and waves of catharsis. With an eye on longevity and vitality, we work to embody radical resiliency through creative care-taking and otherworldly movement-based adventures.” Daniel Lineham & Micahel Helland
