b.1985 in Finland,
based in Helsinki, Finland
Lindfors is a choreographer, artistic director, facilitator and educator. She received a MA in choreography from the University of the Arts Helsinki in 2013. In the core of her work is the practice of shaking and challenging existing power structures and empowering communities.
Her time is divided between her own artistic work, educational work and working as the artistic director of UrbanApa; an inter-disciplinary and counter-hegemonic arts community that offers a platform for new discourses and feminist art practices. In all her positions she creates and facilitates anti-racist and feminist platforms, where a festival, a performance, a publication or a workshop can operate as the site of empowerment and radical collective dreaming.
Lindfors makes her own and collaborative works such as performances, curated programs and performative actions. Her works have been shown and supported by Beursschouwburg, Kampnagel, Spring Utrecht, CODA – festival, Black Box Theater Oslo, Zodiak – Centre for New Dance among others. She is a member of Miracle Workers Collective that represented Finland at the 58th Venice Biennale.
Lindfors has been awarded The Finnish State Art prize for Dance (together with Anniina Jääskeläinen) in 2013, and Anti Festival International Prize for Live Art in 2018.
