d’Ans Viewpoints

Get acquainted with Viewpoints; a playful and physical improvisation technique based on interaction, ensemble training and composition.


By practicing Viewpoints you become very alert about what is happening around you. This awareness is trained by doing simple tasks and by examining your own and each other’s movements. The focus is always on working together in a group. How can the individual be placed in or next to it? The interaction with other players can create a complex and surprising choreography. The experiment starts with your imagination. We try to break down stereotypes by seeking different sources of inspiration. A subtle touch for example, or a playful encounter may be the beginning of a risky and energetic ensemble.
