Zombie means living and dead. Aporia means logical contradiction. The title of choreographer and performer Daniel Linehan’s latest work is a hybrid of two words that have never been joined together before – at least not according to google. In Zombie Aporia, Linehan sets out to create unusual hybrids; musical rhythms colliding with opposing dance rhythms, or physical manipulations that result in the distortion of the voice.

Like much of Linehan’s choreographic output, this work is intent on softly obscuring the line that separates dance from the everyday mannerisms we all use to express ourselves.  Of his work Daniel Linehan says, “Bodies are my main choreographic tools. Bodies include shape, design, scent, taste, sexuality, politics, emotions, thoughts, voice, expression, a history, a present, a future, and much more that I don’t even know about yet.”

New York born Daniel Linehan’s work has been greeted with critical praise both in North America and Europe. From 2008-2010, he studied at the world-renowned dance school PARTS (The Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in Brussels, the city where he is now based as a choreographer. Linehan returns to Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio this May with a
UK Premiere of Zombie Aporia following a successful London debut last year at Sadler’s Wells with Montage for Three and Not About Everything.
