Mary Overlie & the Six Viewpoints
Guest Artist: Mary Overlie
Sunday, June 19th, 12-5:30pm
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.
This course will focus on deconstructing theater and looking 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.
