Voice and Movement classes at Hub 14
Back from a full and exciting month in Montreal, I am teaching two workshops in Toronto this November.

The first of these is part of Hub 14's Public Works Class Series. I will be teaching 5 morning classes in Voice and Movement as the first week in a very exciting and diverse roster of class activities spread throughout the year.

I have included the details about my classes below, but I encourage you to check out the full Public Works season schedule at There are many opportunities to work with a number of vibrant artists in all sorts of mediums.

Susanna Hood – Movement and Voice November 3 – 7, 2008 / 10 – 12 / HUB 14 / $40
Drawing on a variety of practices, we will use a combination of exercises and improvisation to warm and root the voice into the body and body into the voice, looking for connection through feeling/sensation and imagination, to develop the body into an instrument for sound, word and movement.

A compelling and virtuosic performer in dance and music, Susanna Hood is the Artistic Director of hum, an interdisciplinary performance company whose work draws on an integration of movement, voice, live music, and theatre. Her work has been seen and acclaimed throughout Toronto, nationally, and internationally. In June 2006 she received the Dora Mavor Moore Award for her performance in her most recent solo work "She’s gone away". Susanna has been teaching and coaching individuals and groups in voice and movement integration since 1999 and currently teaches Improvisation at the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre.
