Johanna Linsley is an artist, researcher and producer of performance. Her work is collaborative and often iterative, resulting in multiple outcomes or versions. She is interested in contemporary performance and Live Art; documentation of performance; sound, listening and the voice; queer domesticity; and modes of assembly. She has published research in Contemporary Theatre Review, Performance Research and Cultural Geographies. Her work in performance, both solo and with the London-based performance collective I'm With You, has been presented throughout the UK and the USA, and in Brussels, Copenhagen, Zagreb, Bogotà and elsewhere, at institutions including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Hayward Gallery (London), the Barbican Centre (London), the Wellcome Collection (London), and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London).

Johanna is a founding partner of UnionDocs, a centre for documentary arts in Brooklyn, New York. She was a postdoctoral research associate on the Wellcome Trust-funded project Challenging Archives, and research assistant on the AHRC-funded project Performing Documents, both at the University of Bristol. She is currently a postdoctoral research associate on the Leverhulme-funded project Acts of Assembly at the University of Roehampton.
