The Six Viewpoints
Viewpoints are to an actor what finger work is for a pianist, or the barre for a dancer. It is an Improvisational physical training practice, coming from post-modern dance, invented by Mary Overlie. The practice is further developed by Anne Bogart and SITI Company. We take a step back to were the work comes from and explore The Six Viewpoints
Isabel Sanchez has been working with Mary Overlie . In these 5 days we will dive as deeply as possible in the landscape of her approach towards working with the six viewpoints space, shape, time, emotion, movement, story.
“The six viewpoints do not offer up a safari trough the landscape of performance as relatable, convenient and safe journey for the traveler. It is dedicated to reading the stage as a force of nature. Like climbing a mountain, the performer explores the basic material with their own body, their own presence. Always deeply reflective and independently minded as a child.” more about te work www.sixviewpoints.com
The Suzuki Method of Actor Training
Developed by internationally acclaimed director Tadashi Suzuki, the Suzuki Method’s principal concern is with restoring the wholeness of the human body to the theatrical context and uncovering the actor’s innate expressive abilities. A rigorous physical discipline drawn from such diverse influences as ballet, traditional Japanese and Greek theater, the training seeks to heighten the actor’s emotional and physical power and commitment to each moment on the stage. Attention is on the lower body and a vocabulary of footwork. The training sharpens the performer’s inner sensibility, voice, concentration and presence through controlling of the breath, center of gravity and the physical energy of the body.
