Mary Overlie: the six viewpoints & horizontal structures
Taught by Mary Overlie with foolsFURY.
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.
