Born in Canada, Stephen Atkins is a writer, director and teacher who has resided in Australia and the United Kingdom. He has coached professional actors, taught in several studios and directed live theatre for over 20 years. His experience as a coach/teacher spans several well-known American techniques and others originating in Europe and Australia. In 2020, Atkins released his book "Crosspoints: An Integrative Acting System," focusing on an acting method for the expanding field of Performance. It is grounded in Jungian theory, recent research in neuropsychology and the widely influential Viewpoints method. Mary Overlie, creator of the original Viewpoints has said "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 unique ability to understand the depth of the Viewpoints and discuss the practices and philosophy, extending my own comprehension of my work." The Crosspoints book is available for purchase on Amazon.
