The Things I Carry
My body is an archive of my experiences, my sensations, my history, my ancestors. Lee Su-Feh explores these ideas through story-telling, song, movement and our electronic devices. Along the way, she creates a space that is part ceremony, part conference, part confessional. The Things I Carry is a work that Lee developed while participating in Migrant Bodies, an E.U.-sponsored choreographic project which took place between 2014-15, aimed at opening up a civil and artistic reflection on migrations and their cultural impact for the European and Canadian societies.
Concept, Choreography and Performance: Lee Su-Feh
Dramaturgy: Alessandro Sciarroni Text: Lee Su-Feh, with excerpts from On A Plane, by Chris Bose
Sound Design: Junhong McIntosh-Lee
Song: Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell
Thanks to: all the artists and organizers of the Migrant Bodies Project for their feedback and support, all the individuals we have met in our journey and who have contributed to this work directly and indirectly.

Fitzmaurice Voicework® is a somatic approach to voice that “explores the dynamics between body, breath, voice, the imagination, language, and presence. It encourages vibrant voices that communicate intention and feeling without excess effort.” – Catherine Fitzmaurice, founder of Fitzmaurice Voicework®
Su-Feh brings to her teaching of Fitzmaurice Voicework® a tremendous sensitivity to the nuances of body, breath, voice and presence, gleaned from years of practice as a dancer, choreographer and movement teacher. Using pleasure as a guiding principle, we will explore a voice that comes from a body in touch with its sensations. Fitzmaurice Voicework® gives us tools and strategies to listen to the wisdom of our biology while we stay present and connected to the world around us. We will learn to speak with more clarity and and with all our humanity.
…. since breath and voice lie at the intersection of the material and the non-material, this work can also assist in creative, intellectual, and spiritual growth. – from Breathing is Meaning, Catherine Fitzmaurice
