I just got back from a week-long intensive training session with the SITI (Saratoga International Theatre Institute) Company in Boise, ID. They teach the Suzuki and Viewpoints “methods” as training techniques. The teaching was incredibly valuable and the practical applications to my craft and my work as an actor are endless. I highly recommend studying under the SITI company, no matter what kind of artist you are. They perform and teach all over the world and you can find lots of information on their website. (link above)
The history of where each of these practices come from is fascinating, particularly the Viewpoints. Anne Bogart, artistic director of SITI Company, helped to write The Viewpoints Book with Tina Landau. It’s very helpful in understanding the ideas and it’s also full of great exercizes. But Mary Overly was the original thinker behind the theory and her website (sixviewpoints.com) is very inspiring. It is full of the complex ideas that are behind and go beyond the Viewpoints. If you are interested in the Viewpoints at all, I recommend checking out her site too. –Katharine
Eric Marchese gave an overall favorable critique of Linda Whitmore’s Star Turn, read recently at Panndora’s Box Festival of New Works.
Katharine Everett and Toby Meuli received generous comments for their readings of “Tracy” and “Perry,” respectively.
“The scene between Tracy and Perry is among the play’s best [...] Katharine Everett and Toby Meuli made the scene and their characters genuinely compelling, and Everett’s lack of artifice and mannerisms made her acting style seem natural and suited her well to her role.”
Despite faulting the plausability of some of the elements of the play, Marchese is pleased and hopeful about the future of Star Turn.
“With so many strengths, “Star Turn” shows tremendous promise, and a reworking of some of its weaknesses will bring the entire play up to the level of the funny scenes featuring Max [...] and the strong chemistry between Tracy and Perry.”
Panndora Productions just concluded their 3rd annual New Works play-reading festival at the Breath of Fire Theatre in Santa Ana last weekend. Of the five plays featured over the weekend, Star Turn by Linda Whitmore, turned out to be one of the most popular. A Neil Simon-esque comedy set in New York City, it proved to be a crowd-pleaser. Katharine Everett starred as the lead, Tracy White. Toby Meuli starred opposite as the romantic interest, Perry.
