KARIN BERGMAN är en svensk dansare och koreograf, baserad och verksam i Köpenhamn sedan 2013. Hennes kontinuerliga intresse för decentraliserade upplevelser har mynnat ut i flera föreställningar och installationer för museets vita kub och i det publika rummet. Senast i dansprojektet ”Lucy Logan” i samarbete med SydhavnsTeater (DK), men även i produktionerna ”Future Delay” / Madeleine Hollander (US), ”Extended Falls to Humanity” / Tina Tarpgaard (DK) och ”Tårnby Torv Festival” / Andreas Liebmann (CH). Karin är lokalt engagerad och är sedan 2019 med i DanseKooperativet, ett konstnärsdrivet initiativ med 16 lokalt verksamma dansare och koreografer i Köpenhamn. Sedan 2020 är hon också en del av Danscentrum Syd’s styrelse med intentionen att främja utbytet och mötet mellan Köpenhamn's och Malmö’s danskonstnärer. Karin fick sin kandidatutbildning i modern dans och koreografi vid Den Danske Scenekunstskolen 2013-2017.
