Intro to Viewpoints for Improvisation

w/ Oliver Georgiou (Los Angeles)

Viewpoints are a simple set of elements that are always in play whether or not you're paying attention to them, but that can be easily manipulated by the actor through training and awareness. This class will focus on deep tissue listening, recognizing the tenets, and employing them to access & manipulate the energy of a room.

  • You are the actor. Acting is reacting, and there is so much to react to if your mind & body are ready to listen and follow your impulses.
  • You are the writer. Dialogue is a script, and a well-written script can use emphasis & subtext to tell a story with the simplest of words.
  • You are the dramaturge. Less is more, and with so many offers to choose from it's up to you to follow what's entertaining & interesting.
  • You are the director. The world is a stage, but unless you know how to stand on it nobody gives a shit what you say.
