The Crosspoints System is inspired by The Viewpoints. It follows the concept of making all elements of performance equal. By habitual hierarchies and biases, you can see acting from a new angle and create performances from new starting points. This 196-page illustrated book explains exercises and fresh approach to character-building.
Stephen Atkins is an actor/director/writer with 30 years of actor training experience. He has researched acting pedagogy for over 10 years.
Mary Overlie, creator of the Six Viewpoints:
"Atkins’s technique is one of the first cohesive actor-training systems to incorporate the framework of the Viewpoints. I have formed a tight bond with Atkins over several years based on his extensive knowledge of acting methods. He has a unique ability to understand the depth of the Viewpoints and discuss their practices and philosophy, extending my own comprehension of my work."
" I don’t think I’ve come across an actor-trainer with the same galvanising panache and originality as Stephen Atkins. He has developed an exquisite approach to empower actors old and new. Atkins clearly has a profound grasp of the integral relationships between text, platform and performer. The result is pure inspiration. "
