This workshop, held at Studio Bizz Mont Royal from July 22 – 24, 2016, will introduce the artist to the basic principles and foundations of the Suzuki Method of Actor Training, as well as the Viewpoints. The tools gathered in these two training methods will then be directly applied into the creation of work in Composition.
The Suzuki Method of Actor Training, developed by renowned theatre director Tadashi Suzuki, aims to strengthen an actor’s physical and vocal sensibilities developing a highly articulate body capable of expressing and communicating with power and precision and challenging the artists’ use and control of breath, energy, speech, and focus.
Viewpoints, originally conceived by Mary Overlie and further explored by Anne Bogart, is an improvisational method for artists to explore the basic principles of Space and Time, while in play with one another, providing a vocabulary for the way in which we create theatre and performance.
Composition will be the summation of each day of training, using the tools we have learned throughout the day and applying them directly to creation and performance, working in groups to develop and explore the way in which we create theatre from the ground up. The workshop is provided by Bull Pen Productions and FR member Katherine Turnbull.
