Montreal dance artist and vocalist Susanna Hood and composer and trombonist Scott Thomson are performing The Muted Note, Scott’s suite of songs based on poems by long-time Victoria resident P.K. Page in ArtSpring’s gallery on Sunday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m. The songs are composed to be animated through improvisation, which Susanna executes both vocally and in dance.
They will be teaching a workshop on Tuesday, October 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. onstage in the ArtSpring theatre. Susanna and Scott invite attendees –– dancers and musicians, at any level of expertise –– to explore the relationships between text, music, and dance through improvisation. It will be a participatory event where Susanna and Scott will share their experience to encourage participants to explore these relationships in whatever styles of music, dance, and/or poetry resonate with them.
