Born in Indonesia of Chinese/Indonesian descent and now based in NYC, Belinda Adam (she/they) is a queer immigrant performing artist, energy worker, erotic healer, tantra and kink practitioner. As a multidisciplinary artist, their work draws from a queer immigrant woman perspective aiming to manifest the unconditioned truths in bodies towards collective healing and liberation. They are a 2022 Gallim Moving Artist Residency Awardee, 2020 Artist of Exceptional Merit from The Asian American Arts Alliance, and 2017 BAC Grant Recipient. Upon moving to NYC in 2015, Adam danced for MICHIYAYA DANCE, worked with BitterSuite UK at BAM and Designated Movement Company, featured in NYTimes. They have appeared in commercials of VICE-iD, THINX, MILK Makeup, Refinery29 and performed for Women’s March and TEDx. In the span of their career as a multidimensional performing artist, choreographer and director, they have taught, performed, and showcased their work at venues and institutions like Yale University, Brooklyn Museum, Andy Warhol Museum, The Theater at 14th St Y, NYU Jack Crystal Theater, Baruch Performing Arts Center and Gibney Dance Center among others. Adam is currently researching and developing radical pleasure play practices, where they intersect performance arts, breathwork, storytelling, magic rituals, kink and tantric principles as a sacred portal to transport us to the full spectrum of embodied human experience.
