This week's #TBTforTDT showcases Susan Macpherson, recognized as one of Canada's most distinguished modern dancers. We asked Susan about her experience as a #TDTAlumna!

"Before TDT began, I had danced with Yoné Kvietys’ company in Toronto, Charles Weidman’s company in New York, and the London Contemporary Dance Theatre in the U.K. But at TDT, I remained longer than with any of the others, and I expect I developed confidence and skill as a dramatic dancer. By the time I left, I was ready to venture into different directions – dancing for the performance artist Margaret Dragu, dancing and touring with Danny Grossman’s company, and eventually commissioning dances from fabulous choreographers like Robert Cohan, Paul-André Fortier, and James Kudelka, for my own solo touring program.

Certainly one of my favourite works with TDT was David Earle’s THE RECITATION (pictured). My part was very dance-y, very musical (to Ann Southam’s beautiful score), and I got to perform with the amazing Jackie Burroughs.

After a long, round-about route, which included developing a second career in sculptural and functional ceramic work, I find myself back at the School of TDT, where, for the past 20-odd years, I’ve been assisting the School’s Artistic Director, Pat Fraser. One of the perks of this work is that I get to peek over the mezzanine on the way to my office in the tower, and periodically I have to take a break, sit myself down, and watch the company rehearse – they still take my breath away when they’re dancing something like Christopher House’s VENA CAVA!" #TDT #dance
