Kallee Lins

Contributor

Kallee Lins is originally from Castlegar, B.C., where she trained competitively in jazz, ballet, modern, tap and musical theatre. Her affection for the Montréal-based band Stars contributed to her decision to move to Montréal where she completed her BA at McGill University, studying theatre and political science. She continued her modern dance training through classes at LADMMI and Transformation Danse, and performed and choreographed with the Inertia Modern Dance Collective. After completing her MA in theatre and performance studies at York University, Lins switched to York’s department of dance to begin her Ph.D. Her research focusses on the intersections between contemporary performance and politics, specifically embodied representations of chaos. In Toronto, she continues to create and direct physical theatre and conducts movement-based dramaturgy. As a lifelong fan of the CBC, Lins boasts that one of her greatest achievements was being selected as the Peter Gzowski Intern at CBC Radio Montréal. Among the weaknesses that she admits to is a tendency to “splurge on hardcover cookbooks with beautiful photography,” which she reads cover to cover but only occasionally uses for cooking.
