Lu Yim is a Portland-based performance artist and choreographer who 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 and Performance Works NorthWest (Portland). Her Devastation Melody premiered in PICA's TBA: 2015 Festival with tours of Mexico and the United States. She has also been an artist-in-residence at Pieter Performance Space (Los Angeles) and Caldera Arts. Lu is an original member of FLOCK Dance Center.
