The Scene Study is an ongoing class throughout the year bookable in 1, 3, 6 or 12-month blocks. You can join at any time during the year. Contact us here to enquire dates and times.
It offers opportunity to work on modern as well as classic material, from Tarantino via Scorsese to Shakespeare and Moliere. Students have the option to work with a partner or alone on either a scene or monologue for example and develop a character.
We will discover the particular, voice, tonality and emotion. Whether there is a certain specific way that the character talks or walks and any other specific mannerisms.
An important aim is to connect the actor with the sense and emotion of the character and stay connected with own feelings.
Some focus to this will be brought to this process by discovering the subs-text.
Some of the questions that guide the process are:
- What’s behind it all?
- What’s my (the character) relationship to the other person?
- What is my intention?
- What do I want from the scene?
- What is my goal?
- What happens if I don’t get it?
- What is stopping me from achieving my goal?
- Is there a conflict and where?
