People say that dance is an art form which only exists in the moment, and then disappears immediately afterward. But any dancer can tell you that this is untrue. Dance leaves traces that remain long afterwards. Sometimes physically, the accumulation of muscle or the trauma of injuries. But mostly they are ghostly traces, memories of movements that inhabit the body.

In Body of work, Daniel Linehan explores a retrospective archaeology, digging into his past 15 years of creating dances, uncovering fragments of choreography that still remain in his body. Gestures and fragments from his dances combine with memories from his childhood and personal reflections on the world we live in. As the past is always very much inscribed in the present.
