Our Spring 2023 Co-MISSION Fellows offer a split bill Co-MISSION Works-In-Progress showing featuring Erin Kilmurray and Rika Lin (a.k.a. Yoshinojo Fujima)!

Awarded by Links Hall’s Commissioning Committee in 2020, Kilmurray + Lin present to audiences what they have been investigating and exploring while incubating in the white box studio since January.

Tickets are $10

Rika Lin (a.k.a. Yoshinojo Fujima)

is a traditional Japanese dancer, choreographer, and, increasingly, a producer and curator. She is reclaiming willfulness for female artists by building spaces that promote the full person, strengths, and expressions left out of the accepted norms of traditional Japanese performance. Her collaborations embrace musicians, media, and visual artists equally, furthering a meticulous investigation of traditional forms and their progenitor contemporary expressions.

Erin Kilmurray

is a dance artist creating performance works that enliven body and environment, confronting the relationships between performer, spectator, and space. She facilitates a dance practice that explores the limitations and liberations of women, queer folks, the underground and the underdog with a spirit of collectivity.

As a maker of genre-straddling work, her choreography has been presented by contemporary performance spaces, music venues, outdoors, and in nightclubs including the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Thalia Hall, Lollapalooza, Pivot Arts, Visceral Dance Chicago, Metro, and dancebox-Kobe (Japan), among others. Erin has also made dances for countless independent makers, parties, music videos, festivals, concerts, and theatrical productions.

She is the founder/director of The Fly Honey Show, called a “Chicago institution” (Reader), a Chicago Dancemakers Lab Artist (2020), and recognized as 50 People Who Really Perform for Chicago (2023; Newcity).
