About The Viewpoints
Developed by Mary Overlie, and Wendall Beavers, and furthered by artists like Anne Bogart, Tina Landau, and the SITI Company, over the past 20 years Viewpoints training has ignited the imagination of choreographers, actors, directors, designers, and writers. Taught now in universities across the country, Viewpoints, is a practical language for artists to use, work with/create from, time and space. Viewpoint is “a philosophy translated into a technique for training performers, building ensemble and creating movement for the stage.”
