Bio
Lin Snelling has toured the world extensively as a performer with Carbone 14 (1989-2001). As choreographer, performer and teacher, she continues to investigate, perform and teach improvisation, both as a tool for creating choreographic material and a way to keep performances alive and present -
which has cultivated an exploration into bodywork in relation to dance and the spoken, sung and written word. An interest in multidisciplinary art and reinvention fuels her many choreographies, and she creates works, and collaborates with choreographers and directors throughout Canada and
Europe; most recently in Austria, Athens, Belgium, Cyprus and the UK with Repeating Distance, a collaboration with the Belgian dramaturge Guy Cools. Lin is presently teaching dance and improvisation to actors in the BFA Acting
Program at the University of Alberta, and has just completed The Room Residency, a performance involving 10 artists of diverse disciplines, which took place at EDAM and the Western Front. She has collaborated with Peter
Bingham in 2006 (Quell), in 2004 (Interface) and in 2002 (In Performance), and danced with Rob Kitsos last year in Resolutions. She has worked with James Proudfoot at EDAM on more than one occasion and her most recent
creation with the composer and musician Michael Reinhart, with whom she continues to collaborate regularly, is Loop Thing, a performance/lab that brings singers and dancers together. Drawing Space, a book created with the artist
Shelagh Keeley, was published in 2009.

Re-Writing Distance is an on-going performance/workshop practice, created by Lin Snelling and Guy Cools, that allows participants to tell stories, dance, and write. With a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada we spent 10 weeks from July 2011 to August 2013 performing/teaching Rewriting Distance and involving more than 20 other dance artists in 6 different countries. Rewriting Distance toured to London, UK, Limerick and Dublin in Ireland, Antwerp in Belgium, and Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton in Canada. All research, including photos and writing from all participants is archived on the website www.rewritingdistance.com
