Dancer and choreographer Lin Snelling will perform an improvised response to Shelagh Keeley’s site-specific wall drawing Notes on Obsolescence and the distinctive architecture of The Power Plant.

Snelling and Keeley have collaborated for more than 32 years. Having presented past projects in Toronto, Montréal, Antwerp, Cyprus, Vancouver, and Edmonton, they are currently working together on a research project for the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Snelling has toured the world extensively as a performer with the Québecois dance/theatre company Carbone 14 (1989 – 2001) and worked with many improvisation ensembles including ReDirect (2008 – 2012), Chalk (2007), 9-5 at the Belgo (2005), Danse en Galerie (2002), IMF (2000 – 2001), and EnsembleProject (1997 – 1998).

She presently teaches dance, experimental anatomy and improvisation at the University of Alberta. Her recent dance collaborations include Duplex with Gerry Morita, Loop Thing with musician composer Michael Reinhart and as well as Room and Performing Book presented in Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton respectively. She often works with Montréal choreographer Tedi Tafel and was part of Life World and Calendar.
