Lucy Yim (Portland, OR) creates performance work from her interests in body politics, language and the mechanics of memory. Yim investigates through a combination of experimental sound, poetry and somatic movement practices. Her 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). Support for her work has come through residencies from the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (Creative Exchange Lab), Performance Works Northwest (Portland) and Pieter Performance Space (Los Angeles).
