Intro to Viewpoints

WITH MAGGIE MARKS

Viewpoints are a great way to work on your reaction skills, artistic creation, physicality, and being present for the stage. Viewpoints are a great way to create new works or inspire actors and directors if you are feeling stuck or need to be more spontaneous. The class will begin with an introduction into what viewpoints are followed by a physical warmup, and then diving into small viewpoint sessions that can expand into larger ones. It is a drop in format, so you can either come once or come to each class to improve on and better learn Viewpoints. This is a physical class, so individuals should wear comfortable clothes.
