SourceWork and ViewPoints are systems of experiences that train up all the different aspects of a performer and enables the artist to deepen their ability to interpret and animate their roles. The main thrust of the work is preparing the performer to ‘enter the image’. This image can be understood as the end product of a personal impulse either from your inner or outer worlds.
In our life we are constantly using images to reference our lives. While we are keeping track of our outer world through our 5 senses we are also assessing responses within that become thoughts, feelings and ideas. When we are telling stories from our day or reminiscing, we are recalling these images and using text and gestures to describe these images.
In all the body disciplines listening is one of the most important aspects of the performer’s toolkit. As the body relaxes, listening improves and authentic personal responses are revealed. These responses are either repressed or expressed through movement and/or text.
The workshop will be divided into 2 sections:
- the internal, personal response to our impulses (solo work)
- responding to the outer world of each other and the space (influenced)
Join us to explore and experiment together, deepening your performing experience with timeless skills learned through the curriculums of SourceWork and ViewPoints.
