Viewpoints Workshop: Directors

“Viewpoints and Composition offer an alternative to conventional approaches to acting, directing, playwriting and design. They represent a clear-cut procedure and attitude that is non-hierarchical, practical, and collaborative in nature” -The Viewpoints Book

This Viewpoints workshop with Ashley Neal is specifically for directors or those who wish to direct. Directors can use the Viewpoints in innumerable ways in their own rehearsals. The most basic function of this work is to create a common language with which to create and critique. We will explore the foundations of Bogart’s Viewpoints as an ensemble and then apply them to compositions with each director spending time as both an inside eye (performer) and outside eye (director).
