Viewpoints Masterclass with Rayann Condy


Join us in our upcoming Viewpoints Masterclass with director and producer Rayaan Condy on either the 27th Feb or the 1st of March 2023. 

This Viewpoints Masterclass is for actors, dancers, theatre-makers or anyone who would just like a space to play with the vocabulary of Viewpoints once more. The language of Viewpoints allows individuals to exercise their observation and sensitivity of the present moment. This 3-hour workshop is for artists to develop fluidity, articulation and strength in the movement for an individual and their role in an ensemble.

“As an acting student, when I was introduced to Viewpoints — it was a revelation! As an actor who was always in my head, it gave me a means to get into my body. As an actor who didn’t think I was good at movement, it gave me a way to contribute. It was freedom, surrender, frustration, and joy. Years later, when I started teaching it myself, I also discovered how directly it applies to ‘straight acting’ in simple and surprising ways.” — Rayann Condy
