Interrarium is an innovative re-purposing of the residency model focusing on a process-oriented, creative environment for dialogue, critical thinking and experimentation. It is a facilitator-driven lab for professional artists revealing creative practice across disciplines, viewed through the lens of the body, in an immersive environment.

Interrarium showcases dance, live art, cultural and artistic leaders from the international and Canadian community, and brings them together with an alchemy that inspires articulation of practice, rejuvenates artists, stimulates discussion, dissects cultural systems and processes, and forges productive relationships. Interrarium was devised by Nicole Mion, in cumulative creative conversations with active participants over its 13 years of gatherings.


This year Interrarium takes place in Calgary with a dynamic series of creative practice workshops facilitated by inspiring national and international guests.

This 5-day residency workshop is an encounter with the practice of choreographer, performer, and dramaturge Lee Su-Feh through an exploration of Fitzmaurice Voicework® (FV).

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®

This workshop will introduce the foundational concepts of FV and explore them as part of a larger play of creating work. Participants can expect to roll around on the floor, make delicious sounds, dance and play as they uncover a voice that comes from a body in touch with its sensations.



Lee Su-Feh
is a dancer, choreographer, teacher, and dramaturge who has spent the last 30 years exploring the human body as a site of intersecting habits and histories. Born and raised in Malaysia, her early training began with a mix of traditional and contemporary South-east Asian dance and theatre. Since then, she has studied contemporary dance and theatre in Europe and North America with a variety of teachers and has along the way, developed a somatic approach to movement and voice deeply influenced by her lifelong studies in Chinese martial arts, Qigong and Daoism. Since 2010, she has been exploring the Fitzmaurice Voicework® in her practice; and is a certified Associate Teacher of the method.
