Level 2: Scene Work Strategies
Strengthen your two person scenes using characters, relationships, and finding & playing “The Game.”
Building on the fundamentals from Level 1, students will begin to practice skills and techniques that strengthen their scenes and characters. Concepts will be introduced to help create deeper characters and relationships more quickly and to keep things fun. Students will learn how to identify patterns or “games” within a scene (or character) as well as how to create rich environments by performing good object work. Various longform techniques will be covered, such as edits, walk-ons, tag-outs, group scenes, and other tools to help students become more comfortable performing scenes and improvising in front of an audience for their first performance. This class includes a student performance!
