the point or level at which something begins or changes
Suzanne Hersh co-founded Threshold Theatre in the late 80's and went on to create shows in motel rooms and abandoned buildings, by a river and in a field, and in theatres too. As an actor, she devised roles in many of Threshold's original adaptations. Since returning to Toronto, Suzanne has worked with various companies such as Platform 9, Puppetmongers Theatre, Shadowland Theatre, Bread & Puppet Theatre, and YPT while also doing voice work for children’s television and acting in independent films.
A graduate of Queen's Artist in the Community education program, Suzanne initiated workshops, festivals and series while Threshold was the resident company of Kingston's Baby Grand Theatre, and continues to develop community initiatives here in Toronto such as the Oakwood Village Arts Festival launched in 2011. She has written for and directed youth theatre and continues to devise projects for young people.
Suzanne developed Change Room for the 2012 Toronto Fringe Festival and How Can I Kill You If I Look Into Your Eyes for the 2014 LabCab Festival. Currently, she is focussed on Threshold's newest project, Lunation, and devising an original piece, Une Leçon de Français.
