University Campus Oldham (UCO) is set to host a performance workshop led by Australian actor and musician Eilon Morris. Taking place on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th June, the event is open to actors, dancers and musicians of all levels who are looking to explore rhythm as means of developing performance material.
Participants will explore rhythmic elements such as pulse, tempo, metre and polyrhythm in a series of physical and vocal exercises. The workshop is designed to encourage performers to work with rhythm as a live and dynamic process and discover its impact during improvisations and fixed choreographies.
Eilon is Associate Director of the Duende theatre company and has recently completed a doctorate exploring the use of rhythm in actor training. He has presented masterclasses for performers at Central School of Speech and Drama in London and Au Brana Cultural Centre in southern France.
Tray Wilson, Senior Performance Lecturer at UCO says, “We’re thrilled to be welcoming Eilon to UCO. Rhythm is an important element across many different types of performance and the workshop offers a fantastic opportunity to explore its impact in a really practical way”.
The ‘Rhythm as a Training Tool for Performers’ workshop takes place on 24th and 25th June 2013, 10am-5pm at University Campus Oldham. Participants can attend either one or both days, priced at £25 per person (one day) or £45 per person (two days).
