Paul Bargetto has been teaching the Viewpoints for more than twenty years in New York City, Poland and throughout Europe. The Viewpoints is a method of movement training for actors and dancers originally conceived by choreographer Mary Overlie inspired by the pioneering work of the Judson Church Group (including such innovators in dance and music as Robert Dunn, David Gordon, Yvonne Rainier, Meredith Monk, and John Cage). In 1979, experimental theater director Anne Bogart expanded the Viewpoints for training actors in movement and composition for the theater. Her development became a staple of the work of her company the SITI Company and is now standard training in the theater in the United States.
