Stephen Webber, principal performer at SITI Company in New York, will fly to Bangkok to conduct the Viewpoints Workshop at Srinakharinwirot University, Prasarnmit campus, next month.
Organised by Arts on Location, the week-long workshop will run from 10am to 2pm from July 22 to 28. Viewpoints is a technique of improvisation which was first articulated in the late 1980s by postmodern dance choreographer Mary Overlie.
She broke down the two dominant issues performers deal with - time and space - into categories which she called the Six Viewpoints.
The Viewpoints class will focus on the basic elements of the theory, as well as the role of sensation in helping the actor to be present in the space and visible on the stage or wherever they do their work, including in front of the camera.
Students will work on developing open and conscious movements, practise developing and working with an ensemble and learn the basic philosophy of Viewpoints.
The fee for the workshop is 7,500 baht. To apply, send a CV and a statement of intention to email@example.com. Once accepted, a deposit of 4,000 baht is requested to secure a place for each workshop.
