aBOUT THE ARTIST
Lee Su-Feh is an artist whose work encompasses choreography, performance, teaching, mentoring, dramaturgy, writing and community-organizing.
Born and raised in Malaysia, she was indelibly marked by teachers who strove to find a contemporary Asian expression out of the remnants of colonialism and dislocated traditions. Since moving to Vancouver (unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm(Musqueam) , Sḵwx̱wú7mesh(Squamish) , səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-waututh) territories) in 1988, Lee has created a body of work that explores the contemporary body as a site of intersecting and displaced histories and habits.
Lee teaches voice and movement to a wide range of bodies and abilities, within institutions and out of them. She actively mentors young artists across Canada; and works frequently as a dramaturge on other artists’ works. Her approach as an educator and facilitator has been influenced by her studies in Chinese martial arts and Fitzmaurice Voicework.
