In 1979 at NYU, Anne Bogart first worked with Mary Overlie, a teacher and choreographer who developed the Six Viewpoints theory of performance. Bogart met her co-author on The Viewpoints Book, playwright-director Tina Landau (librettist for the Adam Guettel musical, Floyd Collins, and director of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company and New York premieres of The Brother/Sister Plays and Superior Donuts), in Boston in 1987. Together, they more fully realized the training and rehearsal technique pertaining to natural principles of movement in time and space. One of the most innovative directors in American theatre, Bogart is the Artistic Director of SITI Company, which she co-founded with Japanese director Tadashi Suzuki in 1992, and her training techniques are taught at countless universities across the U.S. as well as at her company headquarters in New York City.
