Back in the rehearsal studio today for a two day initial re-rehearsal of Told by the Wind, a piece I co-created with Jo Shapland and Phillip Zarrilli with The Llanarth Group originally in 2010. Since then, the performance has toured to Portugal and the US, Germany and Poland. It’s always fascinating to return to a piece, especially one using aesthetics of Quietude, as this does. There is minimal voiced text, so there is so much inner work required to recapture the piece. Each time it seems to grow and deepen and I’m looking forward to putting it up in Huddersfield in late October, prior to our Japanese tour in November 2013.

The forthcoming tour to Tokyo is an exchange, interaction and collaboration between The Llanarth Group and Okamura Yojiro, Artistic Director of AMI Theatre Company, Tokyo, Japan, and members of their two companies. The exchange/interaction will include performances of The Llanarth Group’sTold by the Wind, performance of a new play by Okamura Yojiro, workshop exchanges, and planning toward a collaborative production in 2014 between the two companies. The year-long exchange/collaborative process is part of a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Japan-British relations.

Three performances of Told by the Wind will take place in Huddersfield 28 and 29 October 2013, prior to travelling to Tokyo.

This intimate and meditative performance is a requiem for the unseen; a poignant duet across time between two figures who never physically meet…

TBTW is an exceptional opportunity to experience the work of Philip Zarilli – internationally known for actor training through Asian martial and meditative arts.

The production is performed as part of Being Here: Psychophysical Performance as Mindfulness Practice – a four day event at the University of Huddersfield.
