"Discovering the Moment" with Tom Pritchard
Masterclass level: Open to all
Working in both movement and voice, Tom will guide participants through playful, energetic explorations of their body in motion, concentrating on the skeleton as a source of structure and the eyes as a source of intrigue. Ideal for all levels, this workshop will open up ways to approach our own creativity as an artful, necessary part of life. For performers specifically, this work offers routes to presence and accuracy in using voice and movement, a finding of ourselves as unique beings worthy of the stage.
Tom is a multidisciplinary practitioner most recently based in Glasgow. He works primarily with movement, text and improvisation. He graduated from LABAN and achieved an MA from LCDS in 2011. Since 2010 Tom has led the performance research and education project On The Stage Of The Present and in 2013 set up the improvisation organisation @TheGlasgowJam alongside Australian dancer, Penny Chivas. He has performed his own work and taught internationally, including spells in New York, Sri Lanka and across Europe as well as working with international companies such as Scottish Dance Theatre, Company Of Wolves and CoisCeim Dance Theatre.
