the viewpoints :: 4 workshops
with synaesthetic theatre
Synaesthetic Theatre invites you to participate in our upcoming
Viewpoints Workshop series. Past workshops have brought together artists from a wide range of mediums and levels of experience
with the Viewpoints. Synaesthetic has planned a four-part series for this fall in which participants will explore Viewpoints
from the ground up, experiment with the use of sound and music, create choreography and practice using the Viewpoints as a
rehearsal tool. Originated by dancer/choreographer Mary Overlie, the Viewpoints provide a simple and profound language with
which performers, choreographers and directors can communicate. Mary introduced 6 labels: Space, Time, Shape, Movement,
Story and Emotion. Having deconstructed the basic building blocks of physical performance, the performer, choreographer
or director is free to examine these separately or in tandem, from all angles, in an infinite investigation. Synaesthetic
Theatre utilizes the Viewpoints extensively during our collaborative rehearsal process for ensemble-building, character exploration,
and the development of themes, relationships and staging.

Theatre is a collective of artists dedicated to creating process oriented, multi-media theatre, synthesizing voice,
text, movement, music, video, and visual art into a single performance experience. As a community of creators, our collective
strives to provide a home in which artists from all realms are supported and encouraged to take risks, exploring their
craft as tools for communication. In this age of expanded media, two-dimensional stimuli, and quick fixes, Synaesthetic
Theatre utilizes live experimental performance to inspire an environment where intellect and emotion function together
-- redefining the boundaries of theater, artist and audience, and encouraging conscious investigation and evaluation of
the world around us.
