What are the Viewpoints? A Practical Guide to Viewpoints and Composition:. It was a shift marked by such events as the protests against the Vietnam War, the marches for civil rights, and the birth of abstract expressionism, postmodernism and minimalism.

During the s, this cultural explosion and artistic revolution bogarr momentum in New York City, San Francisco, and other urban centers and then spread across the nation.

A Brief History of Viewpoints | The Viewpoints Project

The movement was political, aesthetic and personal, and it altered the way artists thought about their processes, their audiences and their role in the world. These postmodern pioneers forged the territory upon viewopints we now stand. They rejected the insistence by the modern dance world upon social messages and virtuosic technique, and replaced it with internal decisions, structures, rules or problems.


What made the final dance was the context of the dance.

Whatever movement occurred while working on these problems became the art. This philosophy lies at the heart of both Viewpoints and Composition.


So out of this tradition of experimentation and questioning arose the Viewpoints. But upon meeting Mary Overlie at New York University inAnne Bogart and later Tina Landau were inspired to expand these six Viewpoints dancers and choreographers into nine viewpoints for actors and theatre practitioners.

So Viewpoints have become an opportunity for discovering new moments in theatre. They are boagrt interactions between a group of actors that are useful for training our senses and sense of play as well as boagrt an ensemble.

Viewpoints – Wikipedia

Of course, all of these descriptions I am giving you are just words, and the Viewpoints are a method for actor training that is wnne experienced and not verbalized. Viewpoints, by their nature, are meant to encourage more risk-taking and bolder choices in acting that are not confined by any particular expectations or a strict process.

Through the improvised exploration of Viewpoints, artistic discovery is possible on a personal and group level. You have to see it to believe it!

During the course of this blog, I will be explaining the Viewpoints in more detail to the best of my ability, as well as including frequent updates on what I am reading, experiencing in life and the theatre, and the project itself once the time grows closer.
