Elin Eyborg lives and works as Architect UK ARB and a MA Performance maker. She is an architect from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art in Copenhagen, 2011 and a MA in Performance Making from Goldsmiths College, University of London, 2015. Elin Eyborg was employed as an architect at Foster + Partners from 2014 and has since 2016 been working as an architect for Ab Rogers Design. She is currently doing a PhD at the Bartlett school of Architecutre, UCL, about Movement Performance as Architectural tool. The continuous focus of her projects is how places and performances interact as an architectural space in the urban landscape. She designs stage elements as demanding props to provoke particular spatial resistance to the performers – a resistance that stimulates everyday human encounters and expands the idea of the social performance. She collaborated as a set designer with New Movement Collective on the series of performances Casting Traces, The Paper Maze, first performed in Testbed 1 in 2012. In her own performance practice, she has developed the notion of Task-making as a choreographic tool, which can be seen in her performances Tidal Gardener and Attendants among others.
