Dancer Shannon Cooney is in residence at the Oxygen Art Centre this month.

Shannon Cooney comes to Oxygen Art Centre

A multi-talented international dancer and choreographer brings a progressive pulse of the contemporary dance world from Berlin.

The Oxygen Art Centre opens their summer season with the arrival of multi-talented international dancer and choreographer Shannon Cooney. Energetically titled Dynamic Expansion, Cooney’s presence at the centre and around town will be invigorating as she brings a progressive pulse of the contemporary dance world from Berlin where Cooney lives.

While in residency this month, Cooney will work on creating a solo dance installation. Her intention is to use her residency to explore a new process that emphasizes the inclusion of everyday interactions and responses of the residency environment to create a new dance. This could include the involvement of other people, spaces, sounds and objects.

Throughout the month Cooney will offer several ways to meet her and get involved in her dance process and project. She emphasizes no experience is necessary to participate in the workshops.

The events being offered include a dance workshop at the Moving Centre on Friday, a performance at the June 15 Nelson city council meeting, and an art event on June 29 to end the residency. More info:
