Arts Etobicoke in partnership with Delta Family Resource Centre is thrilled to present Arts in Wincott Park – a FREE series of arts activities and workshops for the residents of Kingsview Village – Westway community. 

Join Suzanne on a rhythmic journey bringing together physical theatre activities with some sacred traditional percussion, stories, songs and rituals. Let’s celebrate different ways we can express ourselves, fun ways we can all be ourselves while also making space for others! This class is for all ages.

 

Suzanne Roberts Smith is a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada & The Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre and a critically acclaimed actor, director, creator/collaborator plus a passionate artist educator & percussionista. Over the past two decades in Tkaronto, Suzanne’s studied Traditional Afro Brazilian Percussion from Recife, Pernambuco, Brasil. She’s a lifelong learner of these rhythms, instruments and cultural aspects and a livelong listener of how to honour them and pay respect. Suzanne’s central teacher, Juno nominated/singer-songwriter & master percussionist Aline Morales bridges the source of Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante and rhythms from other Nations and Traditions. 

Suzanne is a proud founding member of BAQUE DE BAMBA among a few other percussion based bands including the cherished XOCÔ which feels like winning the lottery every time she plays. Check out their latest video single Zumbi do Besouro.

If you’d like to check out some of Suzanne’s acting work, she was featured, shortlisted and given a Totsie Award for her performance in TOLIVE’s Living Room Series.
