Lee Su-Feh is a performer, choreographer, teacher and dramaturg, who has spent the last 30 years exploring the human body as a site of intersecting habits and histories. Born and raised in Malaysia, her early training began with a mix of traditional and contemporary Southeast Asian dance and theatre. Since then, she has studied contemporary performance in Europe and North America with a variety of teachers and has, along the way, developed a somatic approach to interdisciplinary performance deeply influenced by her lifelong studies in Chinese martial arts, Qigong and Daoism. She is also an Associate Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®. She brings all this to her teaching, which is based on a deep belief in the importance and radicality of self-care. Her intention is to impart this ethos, along with the requisite tools and strategies, to students, so that the development of their instrument is rooted in compassion for self and others. Based in Vancouver, she is the Artistic Director of battery opera performance. Currently, she is the National Artist-in-residence at Dancemakers Creation Centre. 

Balancing Practice

with Tedd Robinson

Sunday September 30

10:00am – 12:00pm

509 Parliament St, Studio C

Cost: $20
 

Exploring creativity, from my standpoint, is exploring the complete unknown. It is acknowledging and accessing an open space of unknown identity. This is just one way to create and I do not deny the myriad other ways of creative thinking.

 

We have to find our way to "not knowing" individually through trial and error. We enter into the realm of "knowing" once we are there and learn to trust any decision that is made beyond the yammering of thinking about it. 

 

It is like balancing a stick on your head, the movement of thought can cause it to fall.

 

This workshop concerns balancing things as a practice. The practice not only concerns trusting creative impulses but practising performance as well.

This workshop is planned to be an exploratory two hours of looking at balancing as a practice, balancing as a creative tool and balancing things as a pleasure.

Please bring a grapefruit or a stick of traveling size with you.
