As a danceartist, one of my ongoing goals and focus points, lies on how to break old physical habits and patterns, in a constant search to renew myself and my way of moving. In my last solo work “Old Traces, New Places” I´ve worked a lot on challenging my own personal limits regarding how and what to do in a performance situation, in order to get myself out of my comfort zone. In this work, which is the most personal work I´ve created up to date, my artistic mission has been to retrace my life and my memories so far, in a search to rediscover myself again and potentially arrive in a new place.

In May 2015, I had the pleasure to be a part of the program “Nordic Body” at 92nd Street Y in New York together with three other female Nordic choreographers. Here is a review of my work “Where the Magic Happens” from “The New York Times” May 11.
The next offerings were just as intimate and full of precise dancing, of which the most elegantly embroidered was Ms. Lindblad’s “Where the Magic Happens,” a duet for herself — six months pregnant — and Stuart Shugg, another Trisha Brown dancer. Starting in near darkness, the light grew increasingly radiant as the performers, using their natural momentum in an array of seamless undulations of tilts and dips, mirrored each other and drew apart. It was spine-tingling: understated, yet grippingly full of sensation.
