Findings at the Edges of the Materials
w/ Timothy Scott & Nicolas Noreña
603 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY 11238
We are thrilled to announce our new Six Viewpoints workshop: FINDINGS AT THE EDGES OF THE MATERIALS.
We will meet at Studio Maya over six Saturdays 12:00pm - 4:00pm from October 30th through December 13th (skipping November 27th).
Each session will be a four hour workshop grounded in one of the six Materials, or SSTEMS as Mary called them: Space, Shape, Time, Emotion, Movement, Story. We will study each material in relation to the other five by exploring their meeting coordinates: where does Story meet Space? How does Space meet Shape? What is the relationship between Space and Emotion? How does Time affect Space? etc.
By tracing the edges of these materials through their relationships, we will arrive at a complex definition of their territory, have a comprehensive idea of how they have been traditionally organized, and experiment with what new possibilities exist in their composition.
This exploration is rooted in 12 years of work with Mary Overlie and stems out of our own unique curiosity with this philosophy and technique. Through a combination of perceptual exercises, movement scores, improvisational explorations and compositional experiments, we will venture together into a deep interrogation of the far edges of this work.
We will cover some introductory Six Viewpoints training, however this course is designed for those who have had some previous experience with Mary's Six Viewpoints. If you are unsure of whether or not this course is right for you, or an appropriate place for you to start, please reach out to us and we can asses this together.
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.
Attendance for this workshop will be capped at 10 students.
