SUZUKI METHOD OF ACTOR TRAINING
Developed by internationally acclaimed director Tadashi Suzuki and the Suzuki Company of Toga, the Suzuki Method’s principle concern is restoring the wholeness of the human body to the theatrical context and uncovering the actor’s innate expressive abilities. A rigorous physical discipline drawn from such diverse influences as ballet, traditional Japanese and Greek theater, and martial arts, the training seeks to heighten the actor’s emotional and physical power and commitment to each moment on the stage. Attention is on the lower body and a vocabulary of footwork, sharpening the actor’s breath control and concentration.
The Viewpoints technique grew out of the post-modern dance world. It was first articulated by choreographer Mary Overlie who broke down the dominant issues performers deal into six categories, the Six Viewpoints. Since that time the SITI Company has continued to research and explore her original work. The language of the Viewpoints allows the individual artist a way to practice observing the present moment with increasing sensitivity, and to respond with greater range. The Viewpoints also allows a group of actors to function together spontaneously and intuitively and to generate bold, theatrical work quickly. It develops flexibility, articulation, and strength in movement for both the individual and ensemble.
