Introduction to Acting, Viewpoints

November 15, 2014
Saturday, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Ages 18 and up
Introduction to Acting Workshop through the Viewpoints Technique.  Appropriate for teachers working with a company of students, directors, beginning actors and those that have studied acting before.  A four week class will be offered in Viewpoints in Spring, 2015.
The Viewpoints is a technique of improvisation that grew out of the post-modern dance world. It was first articulated by choreographer Mary Overlie who broke down the two dominant issues performers deal with - time and space - into six categories. She called her approach the Six Viewpoints. Since that time, Artistic Director Anne Bogart and SITI Company have expanded her notions and adapted them for actors. The Viewpoints allows a group of actors to function together spontaneously and intuitively and to generate bold, theatrical work quickly. It develops flexibility, articulation, and strength in movement and makes ensemble playing really possible.
Instructor: Dane C.T. Leasure, MFA, SDC, SAC, SAF.
