Wynn Holmes is a Canadian artist and choreographer whose performances, recordings, and installations explore the individual and collective power of bodies in motion. These works fuse dance, theatre, architecture, and music, and reflect on how movement, performance, and sound exist within complex systems and ecologies, urban planning, and pop-culture. Her work and teachings are an expression of her lifelong interest in movement, music, and body-mind practices. In 2014, Holmes was introduced to Jessica Fecarotta’s approach to embodied anatomy and dance inspired by the Lilian Arlen Method, which propelled Holmes’ further fascination with movement research and somatic studies. Holmes continues to deepen these practices under the guidance of Jessica Fecarotta and since 2019 has been studying Body-Mind Centering with Bonnie Bainbridge.

Creating for both stage and film, and in gallery and public settings, her work has been exhibited and shown internationally at Fondation Ricard, Le Générateur, École nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, Place Des Arts, Phi Center, Societe des arts technologiques, Lincoln Center, Belgrade National Theatre, Montreal Jazz Festival, Théâtre ESPACE GO, Cannes Film Festival, London International Documentary Film Festival, NEW INC. in collaboration with the New Museum, and Center for Performance Research. Commercial choreography, performance, publication features and collaborations include: Louis Vuitton, SHOWstudio, Vogue, V Magazine, i-D, W Magazine, DAZED, NOWNESS, Madonna, Miguel, J-Cole, Cœur de pirate, Leon Bridges, The Kills, Sleater Kinney, and RZA.

Holmes is the director of Lo Fi Dance Theory, an organization comprised of a contemporary dance company, an international class series, and a research platform that unites dance artists and multidisciplinary collaborators with the public. Creating a community of exchange that fosters dance-centered experiences across all disciplines, cultures and communities in Canada and internationally, Lo Fi Dance Theory’s projects, classes, community outreach, and educational activities aim to push the boundaries between the arts and humanities – or, between social phenomena and kinetic possibility.
