Body-Mind Centering and the Six Viewpoints

Body-Mind Centering (BMC), developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, is a phenomenological approach to the body, its tissues and body systems; as well as the process of movement development from conception through the first year of life.

The Six Viewpoints, developed by Mary Overlie, is a phenomenological investigation of performance and the primordial materials of the stage – space, shape, time, emotion, movement and story – and their compositional possibilities.

BMC and the Viewpoints mirror each other. One explores the inside, the other, the outside. They examine material which is ever-present yet deeply mysterious. Together they offer a way for the artist to develop a relationship with these materials on their own terms. They do not impose an aesthetic formula or method, but a way for the artist to refine their perception of their body and the performance space.
