Focused on the theme of negative-time, this rhythm workshop will explore ways of dropping into, opening out from, and sliding between moments in time. Participants will cultivate their capacity to observe and play in the gaps, exploring the creative potential for movement, sound and language to spring from what is not, rather than what is. These creative tools will be directly applied to solo and ensemble improvisation, with this work being of particular interest to actors, dancers and physical performers as well as musicians with an interest in physicality and movement.
Where: GTAC, 7 Water Row, Glasgow, Scotland
Fri 13th April 18.00 – 21.00
Sat 14th April 11.00 – 17.00
Sun 15th April 11.00 – 17.00
Deadline for applications: 2 April 2018
Eilon’s approach to working with rhythm in performance draws on a wide range of disciplines including psychophysical actor training, movement improvisation, embodied polyrhythms and children’s games. Weaving these approaches together, Eilon has created an accessible yet challenging way for performers to explore the potentials of rhythm in their work, combining play with rigour and personal enquiry. This practice has grown out of over twenty years experience working with theatre, dance and music ensembles in Australia, Europe and America, including Duende, OBRA Theatre, Co. and Quiddity Theatre, as well as research at the Centre of Psychophysical Performance Research and the Taller de Investigación Teatral.
