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.
