The Muted Note: New choreography by Susanna Hood based on P.K. Page poems

The Muted Note is a new stage work by Susanna Hood that synthesizes poetry, music, and dance, with P.K. Page's brilliant verse at its core. The show draws on the fundamental ways that words, music, and dance have been combined throughout history, from folk cultures to the present, but also extends these classic impulses through a novel approach to thematic improvisation in dance and music, one that brings the material ­­– especially Page's rich poetic images – to life.
