Viewpoints: An Actor Training Workshop
May 13 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Generic Ensemble Company and the Dougherty Arts Center invite you to join us for a FREE Actor’s training workshop. All experience levels are welcome to join, whether you are honing your craft or taking a chance on something new. Work with and learn from the creators of B. Iden Payne award winning production of The Mikado Reclaimed.
What is Viewpoints about?
Viewpoints combines embodied performance practice with experience-based writing. Drawing from Anne Bogart’s Viewpoints as a main Generic Ensemble Company training, we alternate parsing space and time with writing exercises that mine our personal history and embodied experience.
Generic Ensemble Company is a Resident Artist Organization of the Dougherty Arts Center through the Museums and Cultural Programs Division of the Parks and Recreation Department.
