Suzanne Beth Miller


Suzanne Miller's choreographic work evolves through dialogue as a generative process that interacts with people, place and living systems. Using dance as a form of knowledge - gathering, healing and questioning, Suzanne explores experience through movement, time and space. Miller's repertoire includes solos, duets, trios, quartets, quintets, and large group works. She has participated at National and International residencies and has received commissions from dance artists, companies and academies.

For the past 35 years Suzanne has been working closely with her partner, composer, sound designer and musician Allan Paivio. Both immediacy and transformation are central to their work. Using the body as a starting point they commemorate forebears' and invoke ancestral and artistic lineage attempting to create allegories that activate and revive a social consciousness. Suzanne Miller & Allan Paivio Productions have produced over fifty original works developed for presentation in theatres, galleries and outdoor spaces. Their collaborations have toured in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and most recently in South Asia.

Daniel Paquet


Daniel Paquet is a photographer active in Saskatchewan and originally from Quebec City. He works in particular portrait, dance and landscape. As a stage photographer, he has worked with dozens of artists. He then explored their performances from new angles, both during the performances and during their development. Its landscapes are linked to human geography, from Jerusalem and the Negev desert in Israel, to Fond du lac in Saskatchewan.

His photographs blur the lines between painting, documentary and fine art. He explores the human condition with simplicity and an aesthetic that does not distort the subjects. His photographs have been exhibited on various occasions in Saskatchewan and Quebec. They have been published in many media around the world.

Daniel Paquet studied computer science at Laval University. He has worked on multimedia and the web since 1995, when he launched Amnesty International's (Canada francophone) first website and the first online press conference in Canada, again for Amnesty International.

Allan Paivio

sound designer, composer

Allan Paivio's music compositions and sound designs provide the aural landscapes for his company, Suzanne Miller & Allan Paivio Productions based in Montreal Canada. Their repertoire includes over fifty original works developed for presentation in theatres as well as for unconventional sites for dance in public space. Their collaborations have toured in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and most recently in South Asia.

Paivio's work often blends sonic imagery such as; birdcalls, trains, crowds and many kinds of identifiable sounds and utterances that manifest in a rich vocabulary of auditory signage that gives meaning and an emotional foundation to a given work. In this way, Allan Paivio's soundscores evoke memory, place, people, and situates the audience in a particular setting.
