Mary Overlie: Advance Viewpoints Lab, April 14 - 18 (New York City)
One-week Advanced Viewpoints lab with Mary Overlie
April 14 18, New York
Don't miss this rare opportunity to work with Mary Overlie, the creator of the Viewpoints approach to theater creation and training.
Please note that prior Viewpoints Experience is required. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org is you are not sure whether this is appropriate for you.
A brilliant teacher and innovator, Mary offers a distinct approach to reconceiving theater, providing a practical and theoretical framework for making compelling, thought-provoking work. Mary teaches basic Viewpoints at her lab at NYU, but rarely offers advanced courses for the general public.
This course will focus on the Horizontal Lab, deconstructing theater and looking at the myriad theatrical possibilities that arise once we let go of our basic preconceptions about narrative and character. The workshop will help you push beyond the known, sparking your creativity, and empowering you with new ways of relating to performers and the audience for whom you perform.
MARY OVERLIE has had a long and respected career as a performer, choreographer, teacher and theater collaborator working extensively in both the United States and Europe.
She is currently teaching at the Experimental Theatre Wing, working on a book for The Six Viewpoints, and designing a certificate program for The Six Viewpoints.
The workshop is presented in collaboration with BEN YALOM, artistic director of foolsFURY Theater Company (SF), and with the generous participation of The Cell Theater (NYC).
