The Virtual training that SITI is currently offering has rekindled, refreshed and reignited my deep love for the Suzuki and Viewpoints work as an artist and educator. All of the instructors are fantastic. They give clear feedback within a supportive and safe environment. I have found the online training very accessible to learn (or re-learn) the work while making it affordable and flexible around my current schedule. I give SITI Company’s virtual sessions my highest recommendation.

Join SITI Company in their final summer workshop with Skidmore College as they honor the past, celebrate the present and lay groundwork for the future. Fifty artists will be invited to take part in this intensive program that will be offered online in light of ongoing pandemic conditions. A virtual experience will provide global artists access to this community and allow SITI Company members and participants to train and perform safely. If conditions permit locally, we encourage existing or pre-formed ensembles to apply and train together; appropriate group rates will be offered.
The program will build on two years of training in digital spaces and a highly successful virtual intensive last summer. Accepted artists will be required to take part in rigorous, physical work, theoretical research, and the generation and performance of new work by each participant. The curriculum is designed for pre-professional and professional artists. The daily schedule will include SITI Company’s core Training of Suzuki and Viewpoints, classes addressing specific techniques for devising work, and additional conversations with Anne Bogart and SITI Company Members.
SITI Company was built on the bedrock of ensemble with the belief that through the practice of collaboration, a group of artists working together over time can have a significant impact upon contemporary theater and the world at large. Since 1992, SITI Company has challenged the status quo, trained to achieve artistic excellence in every aspect of their work, and offered new ways of defining artists as global citizens. They are known world-wide for their performances, educational programs and collaborations with other artists and thinkers. SITI Company is committed to creating opportunities where the interaction of ideas, artists and audiences inspire the possibility for change, optimism and hope.
