November 2014

Several showings of the new work “Pods” have been beautifully received. Thank you to Saskatoon Salsa, Dance Saskatchewan, Potash Corp. Fireworks Festival and Nuit Blanche.

Dr. Sketchy's Zombies at Saskatoon Expo was a great opportunity to build a following. Several new doodlers and artists were excited to hear about our regular life drawing events with a concession and an intermission show!

The Boudoir Photo Shoot, board sponsored fundraiser, was very popular and a financial success. Thanks to Ken Greenhorn for donating his time and creative eye as our photographer. Thank you to the board for sponsoring the event. Thank you to Jo James for donating the use of her beautiful Lia Sophia jewellery. Thanks also to all of the beautiful women that participated.

Dr. Sketchy Creepy Classics took place on Fri. Oct. 22 featuring models dressed as Steam Punk Frankenstein and one of the Ghostbusters! The annual Rosebud Peek a BOO concert also donated $100 in concession tips to our not for profit company!

Free Flow Dance Centre hosted The Muted Note Wed Oct 29th. Montreal composer and trombonist, Scott Thomson, and dance artist and vocalist, Susanna Hood, performed The Muted Note, a suite of songs and dances based on poems by P.K. Page, 40 times and in 9 Canadian provinces in the autumn of 2014.

Scott composed the suite, a hybrid of jazz and artsong, and Susanna subsequently choreographed the songs on three other dancers with live music by Scott's quintet, The Disguises. Susanna's dances, like Scott's songs, are made to be extended through improvisation, and the creative input of their superb collaborators will animate and activate Page's beautiful verse, the core of this provocatively unconventional Poetry + Music + Dance show. (See personnel below.)

Susanna Hood is an award-winning dance artist renowned, especially, for her synthesis of dance and vocal improvisation, as well as her beautifully crafted choreography. In performance, she sings the song lyrics with tremendous poise and intention, and animates them with her singular improvisations characterized by both their focus and wild abandon. As part of their duo, Scott switches freely from accompanying Susanna to soloing in a vocal, extroverted style reminiscent of his teacher, the great American trombonist, Roswell Rudd.

Patricia Kathleen Page (1916-2010) is one of Canada's most celebrated literary figures, and wrote some of this nation's finest poems. She was also a visual artist, working as P.K. Irwin, whose artworks are in the collections of major museums including the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
