All actors, whether novices or veterans, need to stretch their muscles. This class is where a new actor discovers the joys of bringing a story to life, and where a seasoned professional learns to push themselves in exploring a different part of their craft.
Through extensive character work and text analysis and voice and movement work, our Exercises & Techniques for Scene Study & Audition class focuses on telling the story of a scene and embodying a character’s arc (their journey throughout the scene). You will discover the emotional and physical life of your character, use text analysis to mine scripts for motifs and indisputable facts, and learn how to navigate your character’s objectives while responding to the choices of your scene partner.
In this class, students will examine and explore an assigned scene over a period of four weeks. With their scene partner, students will have several opportunities to act out and improve their performance. Actors of all levels and abilities will be challenged to explore their character’s objectives, take risks, and connect with their partner truthfully.
The skills learned in this class allow actors to build and strengthen the tools needed to effectively book and perform larger, more complex roles.
