Upcoming Workshops

My workshops focus on exploring the ways we sense and occupy rhythm through our bodies in space, understanding rhythm as something physical and visceral. Through play, collective and individual investigation, improvisation and devising tasks, these sessions open up the potentials of rhythm in movement, language and sound on stage, and the ways these can transform our experience, and shape the meaning of a performance.

Upcoming Workshop Dates:

Mumbai, November 10th-11th, 2018

Melbourne, December 8th-9th, 2018

South of France, 12th-18th August, 2019

India, October – December 2018

14th October until 4th November – Maharasthra

This year I will be teaching as part of the Duende School of Ensemble Physical Theatre in India.
The first block of training will take place at Kamshet – a remote, residential rural retreat centre about 4 hours from Mu
mbai. There we will live, eat and train together for 20 days, encountering the core approach to ensemble, physicality and performance that is at the heart of The DUENDE School, an approach called Self-With Others. Each morning there will be core training, each afternoon you will encounter key performance skills and engage in solo and shared creative tasks, each evening there will be a chance to perform. It will be an intense immersion in being a performer of physical ensemble work, on the edge of a lake in the shadow of the mountains of rural Maharashtra. 5th November until 11th November.

Mumbai Public Workshop

November 10th-11th, 2018

This year I will also run a public workshop in Mumbai. This workshop will focus on the theme of ‘negative-time’, exploring ways of dropping into, opening out from, and sliding between moments in time. Participants will explore and train the creative potentials of rhythm in movement, sound and language. These creative tools will be directly applied to solo/ensemble improvisation and devising, with this work being of particular interest to actors, dancers and physical performers as well as musicians with an interest in movement and language.

Crossing the Grain

Counterpoints of Movement, Music and Language

Melbourne 8-9 December 2018

& South of France 12-18 August 2019

A workshop led by Eilon Morris and Zoe Katsilerou, focusing on layering and transgressing rhythms of movement, language and music.

How do we alter or contrast an established tempo?
How do we work outside of our habitual sense of rhythm?
How do we find play and nuance in repeated material?

These sessions will offer participants opportunities to experience and explore some of the key rhythmic approaches discussed in Eilon’s book, Rhythm in Acting and Performance, with Zoe also leading technical work on movement and voice. Informed by Eilon and Zoe’s ongoing research into rhythm and relationships between movement and voice, these practices draws on principles of play, ritual and music, combining these in an accessible yet rigorous approach to training performers. Open to performers of all backgrounds and disciplines including actors, dancers and musicians with an interest in movement, sound and play.
