“The knowledge that every day there is something more to learn, something higher to reach for, something new to make for others, makes each day infinitely precious” ~ Uta Hagen
Appropriate for seasoned actors as well as those new to the craft, this class will focus on applying essential acting techniques and character development to scene work. Using object exercises, contextless dialogue work, and partnered scene work, the goal is to help unlock the imagination and create interesting, dynamic character choices. Scenes will be from modern realistic plays selected by the instructor. Participants may suggest scenes they wish to work on. Work will address circumstances, relationships, objectives, tactics, behavior etc. Focus will be on the rehearsal process rather than performance. Outside rehearsal will be required.
The final class will be a presentation of selected scenes for an invited audience.
Length: 10 weeks (February 4 – March 31, Scene Presentations on April 14)
Day/Time: Sundays from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: Storefront Theatre Indianapolis, 2416 E. 55th Place (55th and Keystone)
Recommended Reading: A Challenge for the Actor by Uta Hagen
