Viewpoints Workshop

Viewpoints Workshop

With Laura Sheedy

Have you ever wanted to know what the Viewpoints Training is all about or wanted to deepen your existing practice?

This weekend intensive — led by Laura Sheedy — will offer performers, dance makers and directors, an in-depth look into the technique.

It is open to both beginners and those experienced in Viewpoints and will allow performers and directors to function together spontaneously, intuitively and equip performance makers with skills to generate dynamic work quickly.

Initially inspired by American modern dancer Mary Overlie and then later adapted into the Nine Viewpoints by Anne Bogart (SITI Company), the work has had a far-reaching influence on contemporary theatre and continues to inform new ways of thinking and making theatre.
