This workshop will introduce participants to the Six Viewpoints improvisation technique, addressing essential performance concepts such as being present, active listening, spontaneity, and ensemble playing. Open to dancers, actors, directors, designers, musicians, writers and choreographers, this physical workshop offers an introduction to a common language and practical methodologies for performer training, creative research, or staging a new work.
Performer, director, and teacher, Leslie Baker’s interest spans both theatrical and captured performance, performance installations and interventions. She employs gesture, sound, text, and images in a non-hierarchical approach, exploring various means of performance communication. Baker is an instructor in the Six Viewpoints, having studied with Mary Overlie, Wendell Beavers and Anne Bogart. For 30 years Leslie has explored the Six Viewpoints as a tool for research, creation, and performer training.
