Shapeshifting follows the metamorphosis of a dancer breaking free from invisible strings. In her first solo, Linda Hayford overtakes genres and conventions, mixing hip hop and popping to craft her own language. Refreshing and delicate, Shapeshifting guides you through a succession of shapes suggesting geometry and animality.


Linda Hayford is a young and yet accomplished dancer whose undeniable mastery of technique serves strong organic gestures, where popping, hip hop and house dance all meet together in a harmonious body expression.

She collaborates with companies and artists such as Par Terre – Anne Nguyen, Paradox-sal, Engrenage – Marie Houdin and Black Sheep – Johanna Faye / Saïdo Lehlouh, and also her own personal projects within her company, Inside Out.
