Sara Lindström (co-choreographer/performer) is an artist from Sweden. Her artistic practice is one of dance and choreography in its broadest manifestations, from live performances to film and site-specific installation work. She graduated with a BA in Dance and Theatre from Trinity Laban in London and shortly after co-founded MIKS, a London based dance company in residence at Greenwich Dance. With MIKS Sara choreographed and performed numerous works between 2005-2011. Her more recent work has unfolded around questions of public space and she has been commissioned to develop site-specific works in various places. In 2012 Sara collaborated as a choreographer with artist duo Lundahl&Seitl with whom she has also worked as a performer over several years. Additionally, Sara’s dance films have been screened internationally.
