Master Workshop with Mary Overlie in NYC: Horizontal Structures
Master Workshop with Mary Overlie: Horizontal Structures
November 17th 2012 in NYC, 10AM-3pm (one day only!)
ATTENTION! WE HAVE CHANGED STUDIO LOCATIONS.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however last-minute studio conflicts prevailed.
The NEW LOCATION IS:
THE CELL THEATRE
338 W. 23rd St, NYC (between 8th and 9th avenues)
Don't miss this rare opportunity to work with the incomparable Mary Overlie, originator of the Viewpoints approach to theater creation and training.
A brilliant teacher and innovator, Mary offers a distinct approach to re-conceiving theater, providing a practical and theoretical framework for making compelling, thought-provoking work. Mary teaches basic Viewpoints at her lab in the NYU Experimental Theater Wing, but rarely offers intermediate/advanced courses for the general public.
New Course Approach: This course will focus on Horizontal Structures for making theater, resources for making theater and performance skills. We will deconstruct theater and look at the myriad possibilities that arise once we let go of our basic preconceptions about narrative and character. The workshop will challenge your known perceptions, spark your creativity, and empower you with new ways of relating to other performers and the audience.
