Join us in our upcoming Viewpoints Masterclass with director and producer Rayaan Condy on 23 Feb 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
