LIN SNELLING + GUY COOLS
What is Rewriting Distance?
Rewriting Distance is a performance/workshop practice, created by Lin Snelling and Guy Cools with photographer Michael Reinhart that allows participants to tell stories, dance, and write.
This period of Rewriting Distance continues to be about returning … going back to places we have been/and collaborating with artists we have worked with before, but in a new site-specific location. This performance is also accompanied by a Symposium at the Timms Centre for the Arts, and a Performance Intensive at Mile Zero Dance.
