“This work opens up for the performer the possibility to cultivate a greater awareness and understanding of rhythm. I have found this work to be an integral part of my own training as an actor and invaluable in the training of performance students. Eilon’s work is highly structured and imaginative enabling the participant to work at their own rate and embracing moments of utter bewilderment.”

Tray Wilson, Head of Drama at Oldham University Campus

“As part of an MA course in collaborative performance devising at Central School of Speech & Drama we were looking for ways to help makers of non-narrative performance use structure to organize their performance material and working methods. We called on Eilon Morris to come and teach a 3-part rhythm workshop and we weren’t disappointed. He was able to take our students through polyrhythmic patterns that found them experiencing themselves as individual parts of a greater whole. They found themselves experiencing different modes of thought and action and they experienced a kind of body intelligence only theorized before this.The rhythm work in Eilon Morris’s workshops offers a basis for structural strategies and can promote climates of attention that provide disciplined working environments. Through his rhythm work we find strategies to unify and support productive ensemble dynamics.”

–Karen Christopher, collaborative performance maker, mentor, and teacher

Polyrhythms which would have appeared terrifying written in score form were eased out of us as simple things. Or even unconscious things.”

–Alex Kyle, Musician and Choir Leader

“I have both observed and participated in Eilon’s work over several years. He is sophisticated in his understanding of his work and sensitive in its teaching. Often he teaches alongside me in the hot-house atmosphere of residential workshops and his input is always invaluable. I commend him as both as a teacher and as a collaborator.”

–John Britton, Author ‘Encountering Ensemble’

“Eilon has been integral to my development as a performer and massive influence as an artist exploring and developing his own practice.  Eilon’s practice on the use of rhythm in training has been invaluable to me and is something that I want to engage with much more in the future.   I consider its application in the building of ensemble to training to rehearsals the most useful tool to connect and respond to others.”

–Stacey Johnstone, Performer and Educator

“I really enjoyed experiencing rhythm in a group setting – Eilon’s activities really encouraged us to ‘let go’ and be caught up in the powerful flow of various rhythmic patterns. I felt that everyone was able to get a different experience from the workshop because it did not rely on having to achieve a certain level of temporal awareness or movement; instead, the participants were encouraged to concentrate on their own individual experiences and when some of us ‘lost it’ we could step out and join the flow of the group again in our own time. In terms of ensemble awareness, I have not experienced a more powerful integration of a group than during Eilon’s Orbits work.”

–Justina Kasponyte, Postgraduate Research Student

“As a professional singer and instrumentalist, I greatly value the way in which Eilon’s group workshops over the years have helped me  reach into my practice and develop/ use sound of greater complexity with confidence. He has the enviable ability to present what would seem to be difficult, complex work in a way that allows us to sink into it  and cope with whatever he suggests.”

–Chris Coe, Singer and Voice Coach
