Suzuki and Viewpoints


More about Suzuki and Viewpoints:



The Suzuki Method is a rigorous physical and vocal discipline for performers, created by renowned theater artist Tadashi Suzuki and his company. The method is designed to regain the perceptive abilities and powers of the body/voice instrument. Drawing on a unique combination of traditional and innovative forms, the training strives to restore the wholeness of the body as a tool of theatrical expression.



The Viewpoints is a performance language that articulates specific elements of time and space and emboldens practitioners to generate strong theatrical work spontaneously and intuitively. The nine Viewpoints, as articulated by Anne Bogart and the SITI Company are powerful tools to build ensemble, expand possibilities in rehearsal, or generate new work. Through rigorous training in improvisation and composition the Viewpoints extend possibilities in the quality and range of the performer and the ensemble.
