Anne Bogart & Tina Landau

Published by Theatre Communications Group

The Viewpoints Book is the essential guide to one of the newest and most successful approaches to acting since The Method

The Viewpoints are a set of names given to certain principles of movement through time and space

Together, they constitute a language for talking about what happens on stage

Derived from a technique of improvisation that grew out of the post-modern dance world first articulated by choreographer Mary Overlie, directors Anne Bogart and Tina Landau have expanded her notions and adapted them to aid actors to function together spontaneously and intuitively to generate new and bold theatrical work

Coupling this with Composition - the practice of selecting and arranging the separate components of theatrical language into a cohesive work of art - provides theatre artists with an important new tool for creating and understanding their art form

The book is primarily intended for the many theatre artists who have become increasingly intrigued with Viewpoints yet - until now - have had no single source to refer to in their investigations

It can also be used by anyone with a general interest in collaboration and the creative process - whether in art, business or daily life

Anne Bogart is Artistic Director of the SITI Company, which she founded with Japanese director Tadashi Suzuki in 1992

She is the recipient of two OBIE Awards and a Bessie Award, and is an associate professor at Columbia University
