Mary Overlie is an American choreographer, performer, and teacher. Her extensive work in theater has brought her to develop the “Six Viewpoints” method, which consists of a study to understand and practice post-modern theater. It is anchored on the following principles: information of space, experience of time, familiarity of shapes, quality and rules of kinetics in movement, logic of arrangement of the story, and emotional exchanges that constitute the processes of communication among beings. During her career, Overlie has performed in Europe and the United States and she has collaborated with many artists, including Nina Martin, Wendell Beavers, and David Warrilow. Overlie was also one of the founders of Dancespace Project at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery and she helped in the founding of Movement Research. In 1978, Overlie choreographed and presented Painter’s Dream at The Kitchen.
