Portland-based performance artist and choreographer Lu Yim​ creates work from her interests in body politics, language, and the mechanics of memory. Yim’s investigation is culled from a combination of experimental art, poetry, and somatic dance practices. Yim’s creative process, founded in writing and improvisation, leads to metaphors and ideas performed as actions. Past collaborators include Enrico D. Wey, Jin Camou, Jesse Mejía, and Physical Education (Takahiro Yamamoto, Allie Hankins, and keyon gaskin). Yim’s work has been supported by PICA’s Creative Exchange Lab, Performance Works NorthWest (Portland), and Pieter Performance Space (Los Angeles).
