The closest I've found is that in all I do I see myself as a Creative Facilitator. I move, I speak and I write. My arts practice is my way of collaborating with life. If collaboration is a form of ongoing dialogue, with the aim to develop individual views of the world and our voice in it, then collaboration is what I will always strive to do. I wish to use the art I am involved in to both provoke and nurture, to move people to respond and enter into conversation. I believe everyone should be part of the conversation and it's our responsibility to make it so. Performance as a mode of facilitating others. Facilitating as a form of present performance. I am motivated to develop a performance practice and pedagogy that can be relevant to all who choose to take part, whoever they and whatever they bring with them. So I may be a performer in another's work, a maker creating new movement or text based performance on myself, an ensemble or an existing company or as a facilitator participating in playful, thoughtful engagement with our creative potentials. I'm interested in edges and what's over them. It's all allowed.

Imperfect Is Our Paradise, The
"In this unusual collaborative relationship between myself and a traditional cheese maker (Cambus O'May) I explored ideas around gift giving, considering the passing down and continuation of traditional processes as a form of ongoing passage of a gift. I ask in the work whether such a way of being, community focussed and local would be seen as radical or even feasible in our internationalist, capitalist world. I ask whether we maintain artisanal processes partly to maintain a link to our land and past labours in our comfortable, digitised experience of living. I ask whether this cheese really does taste better and if so, why. I ask the audience to be playful and ask if this might be a way to be. And I invite the audience to become a community for the duration of the performance and explore what it is to value debt as a way of creating strong and reliable social bonds. " - Tom Pritchard
