About SITI Company:
SITI Company is an ensemble-based theater company whose three ongoing components are the creation of new work, the training of young theater artists, and a commitment to international collaboration.

SITI was founded in 1992 by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki to redefine and revitalize contemporary theater in the United States through an emphasis on international cultural exchange and collaboration. Originally envisioned as a summer institute in Saratoga Springs, New York, SITI has expanded to encompass a year-round program based in New York City with a summer season in Saratoga. SITI believes that contemporary American theater must necessarily incorporate artists from around the world and learn from the resulting cross-cultural exchange of dance, music, art, and performance experiences.

It is through the dialogue between Suzuki and Viewpoints, these two very distinct, yet complementary approaches that the philosophy and technique of SITI Company is continually explored, revitalized, and articulated. The Viewpoints and the Suzuki Method of Actor Training are two distinct methods of actor training used in building and staging SITI productions. SITI Company members have been trained by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki and are uniquely qualified to introduce and train other theater artists in these challenging and innovative methods. More information, go to:

One of the most important aspects of SITI's work is the teaching of their training techniques, to actors and theater artists throughout the United States and the world.   In addition to the workshops, SITI members are on the faculties of such institutions as The Juilliard School, New York University, and Columbia University.

About theTraining:

Developed by internationally acclaimed director, Tadashi Suzuki and the Suzuki Company of Toga, the Suzuki Actor Training 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 and martial arts, 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, sharpening the actor's breath control and concentration.

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.

Generating from the Viewpoints/Looking with the Viewpoints:
So many people have asked over the years, "Yeah, but how do you use the Viewpoints?" In this two-day experience we will try to tackle that question and answer it repeatedly. We will create work from nothing, work from preexisting source material, and work from the body/mind, individually and collectively. We will look at how music functions inside of devised work as both structure and sometimes prison, and how to free ourselves from that prison. We will look at Bizet's Opera "Carmen" and put it through the post-modern food processor and see how the Viewpoints can shed new light, and fresh inspirations on an iconic piece of music and theater.
