Taking a Road Trip with Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan (2012)

"Who would you take on a road trip? With most journeys, the destination isn’t as important as how you get there, and the person you take can make the all the difference.  In their recent collaboration, Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan use the road trip as a metaphor to explore the wonderfully turbulent journey of friendship and what it means to experience this with someone along the way."

 

The Dance Current (2011)

Susie Burpee: The Contours of Characer by Megan Andrews

"As an interpreter, this work is sometimes terrifying, and always illuminating. My favourite moments in performance are those moments when there is a surprising and unexpected turn of events, when it seems as if the whole work might suddenly crash and burn and the character is forced to make a brave behavioural choice while the audience sits in witness. These moments are one-of-a-kind and significant in their ephemeral nature. They reveal so much about the character, and always, something illuminating emerges out of the beautiful wreckage of the moment."
