In this practical workshop, practitioners Zoe Katsilerou and Eilon
Morris will share aspects of their approaches to actor training. Drawing on their respective research into somatic awareness, vocal resonance, entanglement of movement and voice, and temporality, rhythm,
simultaneity, Zoe and Eilon will offer tools for participants to further explore their creative possibilities of space and time in performance.
The session will include movement and vocal practices, pair and solo
work and improvisation, and will encourage participants to inhabit a state of curiosity and play. Please, wear comfortable clothing and come
prepared to work barefoot.
