In The Instance Of Arrival

Sat 3 Nov 2012 | 7.30pm | £6/£4

Following their performance here back in January 2012, On The Stage Of The Present returns with a new ensemble fresh from a month’s research across Scotland.

Featuring Ewan Downie (co-director of Company of Wolves, Song Of The Goat Theatre), Anna Porubcansky (co-director of Company Wolves, Madrigirls) and Kim Moore (Zoey van Goey), OTSOTP director Tom Pritchard will be continuing his explorations of multidisciplinary performance improvisation. Looking in depth at the role of myth, dreams and folk culture as sources of storytelling, this research aims to produce quality performance improvisation across dance, music, theatre, song and poetry.

The work is being mentored by the internationally renowned pair Katie Duck and Alfredo Genovese.

There will also be informal sharings of the research in progress as follows:

Sharing: Fri 12th October | 6pm |  CCA, Glasgow
Studio Performance: Thurs 18th October | 5.30pm | Citymoves, Aberdeen (part of Dance Live)

About On The Stage Of The Present |

On The Stage Of The Present is a performance-based research project led by Tom Pritchard. Developed with the support of the Workroom, Dance House and The Arches (Glasgow) and Dance Base (Edinburgh), its primary focus is cross art-form improvisation. Working with visual artists, musicians, dancers and actors, the research ranges from from durational gallery-based performance and stage work to studio-based practice and site-specific sculpture.
