WED
Scene Study w/John S. Davies
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Scene Study, a 5-week intensive study of a 5-7 minute contemporary theater scene.
Includes analysis (beats; use of language; character intentions; moment to moment actions), rehearsal (putting the analysis into action) and performance for a small invited audience. If you consider yourself a 'film' actor, this will stretch your skills, making film scenes seem easy by comparison. If you're any kind of actor who hasn't had challenging work lately, this will get you back in the saddle and give you very necessary preparation. If you're a beginner with some training, this class will help you put the training to use and prepare you to work.
