To do theater is, among other things, to stage the body with all the expressive and communicative burden that this decision entails: a body located in the space offered to the gaze of the other for a time is already a transmitter. There is therefore a dramaturgy that from the physicality considers the body as an essential element for structure and composition. A body that functions as the backbone of action and interacts through movement and word.
The Viewpoints, scenic points of view, offer us the possibility of understanding and practicing this language, differentiating aspects that give meaning to the action in themselves. The performer deploys listening and the ability to make decisions here and now in relation to architecture, topography, form, gesture, tempo, duration, repetition, and kinesthetic response.
This work is inspired by the Viewpoints of the choreographer Marie Overlie that theAnne Bogart and his theater company, SITI company, have led to the training of the performer and the creation. It is an essentially practical course, in the format of an improvisation laboratory, which aims to open up a space for play and exchange between students of acting, drama and other performing arts professionals.
