An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on Sunday, repeating until Sun, June 9, 2019
The Six Viewpoints is a philosophy that originates from physical movement. Its fundamental approach is to deconstruct the materials or languages that make up performance (Shape, Space, Time, Emotion, Movement, Story), be it dance, theater or performance art. This workshop focuses on the act of deconstruction, a vital process in the Six Viewpoints theory. In each class we will take two materials and explore them independently. From there, we will explore the space between the two. Throughout the course of the class, we will focus on elements of composition and improvisational performance as a way of honing our skills of deconstruction.
My name is Nicolas Norena, I am a theater maker from Colombia living in Brooklyn. I started studying the Six Viewpoints with Mary Overlie ten years ago at the Experimental Theater Wing within NYU. Since then, I have studied privately with her, traveled with her through Europe and Amercia and have been trained to teach by her. I have assisted her at Rose Bruford College, Impulstanz, Danza Canal and Accademia Teatro Dimitri. I have also taught independently in Universidad de los Andes, Centroids Cultural Lucy Tejada, Cave home of LEIMAY and New York University. Timothy and I have a theater company called The Million Underscores, through which we create and direct original experimental theater pieces.
