Applying The Viewpoints: play production
"I love the Viewpoints, but how do I actually apply this stuff to making a play?"

This evening-length workshop looks at ways of applying The Viewpoints to the specific challenges of creating a play. The Viewpoints are one of the most effective and exciting theater trainings in use today. Various versions of these techniques are now being taught in universities, conservatories, and professional workshops around the United States and abroad. They are both an excellent way of teaching actors, as well as a powerful tool in generating material. But training in The Viewpoints as a performer is very different from learning to use them effectively in creating a piece of theater.  Through discussion and director-actor exercises, the course will offer practical ways to apply The Viewpoints working with either extant text or devising new work.  Students will review basic ideas and exercises of The Viewpoints, honing the teacher or director's ability to use The Viewpoints with an ensemble, ways of generating material from Viewpoints sessions, and exploring scene work with a Viewpoints perspective. Highly suggested for Factory Parts participants, directors, ensemble theater makers, dance theater artists, high school/university instructors, and anyone who wants new skills working with text.
