We invite all who have previous experience in Grotowski-based acting and the Six Viewpoints to join us in an experiment designed to deepen and extend our training and performance practices.

Week One: Owning What We Know

An in-depth review of the principles and practices of Six Viewpoints and Grotowski-based acting, taking the time to explore how each of these approaches transforms both performer and performance.

Week Two: Entering the Unknown

An exploration of the continuum from meditative practice to physical exploration of space, time, emotion and image. Full-group and small group experiments with Steve, Wendell and Erica investigating how text and performance can emerge from this work, and how these two profound disciplines can intersect with and augment each other.
