Course Description

Get Out of Your Heads and into the Scene: Viewpoints Actor Training & Devised Theatre Creating A devised theatre is theatre that begins without a script. The script gets “written” as the rehearsal process takes place through a series of improvisations and collaborations. This course offers detailed exploration of every aspect of the devising process and valuable insights into the process of making theater collectively.

The course is designed for all who are interested in non-text-based theatre and intends to shine a practical light on the passionate business of the devising process. You will learn acting with Anne Bogart’s Viewpoint Training as our acting foundation. The most essential quality in learning Viewpoints Training is being open to what actually occurs in the group rather than what you had hoped could occur. We become authentic collaborators who work with a spirit of generosity.
