You asked for it, here it is: a 5-week Intro to Viewpoints workshop

Calling all actors, comedians, improvisers, dancers, directors, filmmakers, photographers, writers, philosophers, designers, and artists of all kinds! Come join Core Theatre Ensemble for an enlightening movement workshop!

Workshop Description:
Over the course of five weeks (Sunday evenings in March), we will introduce the class to the basics of Viewpoints movement training. This workshop will concentrate on learning and exploring the individual aspects of movement as defined by this training, and each class will last approximately 2 ½ hours.

What are the Viewpoints? Viewpoints is a system of physical improvisations that are the basis on which one defines a physical performance.

What does that mean? Well, it means we’ll get you on your feet and we’ll be exploring the elemental properties of movement. Core will guide you through ideas of framing, focus, perspective, and the beginning elements of Viewpoints movement training — all things needed in the arts and in life! As a group, we will be creating with others and watching what others create.

Viewpoints training increases awareness of how an audience perceives characters and stories. This training gives its students the ability to use their bodies naturally as well as dynamically. It’s an invaluable tool for all ages and career stages, and it’s fun and eye-opening, so come join us!
