Biography

Jas Lin 林思穎 (they/them) is a Taiwanese/American performance artist, choreographer, and constant (un)becoming born and based on Tongva Land (Los Angeles). lin stages exorcisms for purging choreographies of the learned body and shutting down internal and external surveillance cameras that suggest there is a Proper way to move through the world. their practice of deep feeling is invested in re-membering what the body has been manipulated into forgetting. they value performance as a ritual of deep presence– by returning to our senses, we can reawaken to our possibility, agency, and relationships within the world around us. lin’s practice emerges from a vast lineage of teachers, from friendships to films to flowers. centering play in the everyday, they experiment with multiplicity and contradiction while dancing with the world as their body. jas loves to co-create shared fugitive worlds and live in them. their choreographies, films, workshops, and lectures have been shared around the world, including at Power Station of Art Shanghai, Danshallerne Copenhagen, British Museum, SXSW, REDCAT Los Angeles, and Kassel Dokfest. they most recently staged a full-length show for Mitski’s 2022 Laurel Hell Tour. jas has also directed music videos for artists such as Sonia Calico and OHYUNG, choreographed for Hana Vu, Hope Tala, and Melanie Martinez, and danced for Cassils, Tinashe, and The Weeknd. jas is committed to the life-long processes of un-learning and un-teaching hierarchical, Othering, and superficial ways of moving, being, sensing, and knowing. they believe movement to be a manifestation and actualization of potentiality– that together, we can dance the possible into being.
