With Leon Ingulsrud and Sam Stricklen
Oct 19 – 30
Monday – Friday 12 – 2pm
A totally new approach to learning the Suzuki Method of Actor Training and the Viewpoints, specifically designed for someone who is doing it for the first time in a virtual class. The training is explained using graphics and animations, so that the participant can learn in an environment of safety and clarity.
Not seeking to recreate a studio class, this course will take advantage of what distanced learning actually does well and teach the participant to train in their own space. By the end of the program the new-comer to these training methods will be able to participate in other virtual classes that SITI offers.
About SITI’s Training:
Developed by the internationally acclaimed director Tadashi Suzuki and the Suzuki Company of Toga, the Suzuki Method seeks to heighten the actor’s emotional and physical power and commitment to each moment on the stage.
The Viewpoints were first articulated by choreographer Mary Overlie who broke down the two dominant issues performers deal with – time and space – into six categories, the Six Viewpoints. Since that time the SITI Company has expanded her original notions and adapted them for actors.
