Adam Linder is a Sydney-born dance-maker and performer. At age sixteen he left Australia to pursue his craft abroad.
His practice consists of works made for the theatre and Choreographic Services, which can be hired per hour and are not bound to a singular context.

The film adaptation of Parade, directed by Shahryar Nashat, premiered at the 8th Berlin Biennale. Further presentations of these works have included Kunsthaus Bregenz (2014), American Realness NYC (2014), Rencontres Chorégraphiques (2014), KM – Künstlerhaus Graz (2013), Kunstverein Nürnberg (2013), Sophiensaele Berlin (2013), Liste Performance Projects – Basel (2013), Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel (2013) and Halle für Kunst Lüneburg (2012).
In the past Linder performed with Michael Clark, Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods and The Royal Ballet. He also trained to be a dancer at The Royal Ballet School in London.
Are We That We Are was Adam’s first commission from Rafael Bonachela and Sydney Dance Company. The work marks the first time that Adam’s prodigious talent has been seen in his home city, both as a choreographer and as a performer in the piece.
