Suzuki and Viewpoints

The director/performer/educator born and raised in Minnesota who has spent many years in Nepal teaching Nepali high school students and directing and performing with One World Theatre, Rose Schwietz is here introducing the participants to the complimentary practices of Suzuki and Viewpoints. Suzuki training develops an actor connection to Earth while balancing with lightness and control in the upper body, making actors who are versatile and expressive. With the six “Basics”, actors become stronger movers and speakers by understanding the relationship between voice, body, and the center. Viewpoint compliments this by teaching actors to connect with one another while accessing the creative potential of space and time. By exploring the “Nine’ aspects of performance while learning a shared vocabulary for ensemble-building.

Participants are requested to bring materials such as socks/tabi and with close-fitting pants or shorts so knees are visible.
