We would like to welcome our new Learning and Participation Co-ordinator Richard Pitt to the team.
Richard comes from a background in performance, choreography and rehearsal directing. He has worked as Event Coordinator for Nottinghill Carnival and more recently as programmer for Dance of the African Diaspora (DAD). We are very excited to have him on the team.
Read a short interview we had with Richard:
- What are you looking forward to doing at Tavaziva?
I hope to be able to learn more about the Company and the goals of the Company so that I can support the vision as much as possible. Tavaziva is already doing so much and reaching so many people, so I look forward to being able to go out and speak to existing partners and build new relationships where I can.
- What do you love most about Tavaziva?
Well, that’s an easy one. Bawren is such a dynamic artist. I just had the chance to observe him delivering a workshop and an audition; the way that he works is really inspiring and exciting. Also, having been part of the team for just 2 weeks I can also see that Bawren is lucky to have a really lovely and passionate team working hard behind the scenes to keep the machine running smoothly and ensuring that Bawren’s work reaches as many people as possible. All of this makes Tavaziva such a lovely place to work, and special thing to be a part of.
- What made you want to work in a dance company?
Dance has always been a major part of my life; it is definitely a passion of mine. Being able to support a dance company, dancers and choreographers is something that is important to me, and if we are able to share dance with as many people as possible it can only be a good thing.
- Are there any fun facts about yourself?
Hmmmm. I have jumped out of a plane twice. That was fun! I was lucky to spend time in Australia and New Zealand and while I was there it seemed like the right thing to do!
