The fourth and final Performance research course in voice and movement. Students with credit for FPA 355 may not take this course for further credit.


In this course we will work with expressions of movement and voice from multiple perspectives such as, the subtle movements and the sound of breath to social choreography and our individual artistic voices. Unfolding the experiences of how our bodies move politically and poetically through time and space, we will question through practice what is the voice, where does it resonate and how does it speak. Rooted in an experimental and somatic approach we will use scores and task-based structures to explore, play, discuss and dwell in the possibility of what being a performing artist in 2022 can be. In addition, smaller collaborative and individual creative assignments will be given throughout the course.


  • Attendance and Participation 30%
  • Practical integration of concepts proposed in the class, engagement with working process and practices 30%
  • Development and sharing of creative assignments 40%

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html


Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place.  Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes.  You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the spring 2022 term.
