VIEWPOINTS AND STAGING
September 6, 7 & 8, 2022
10:00 am - 2:00 pm CST
Maximum Participants: 16
ASL interpretation will be available upon request.
This workshop is for actors and directors, focusing on Viewpoints, a training and creation discipline originally created by Mary Overlie and later developed by theatre artists including SITI Company.
Viewpoints is observational and improvisational. It considers Time and Space as the materials of theatre and invites the individual and the collective to use these materials in their work.
The workshop will be divided between Viewpoints and Staging (using scripts or devising to consider how the work of Viewpoints can be available to the artist in rehearsals for any genre of production.)
