AP3: Scene Work




8 Weeks (1 day/week, 2.5 hrs)

NOTE: Registration is Non-Refundable

Please be sure to read through our policies prior to registering.

About the Course:

AP3: Scene Work is about taking that next step in scenes. While AP2 focused on the beginning moments of a scene, in AP3 students are challenged to play with more complexity and style, juggling it all within a scene while always maintaining their strong point of view.

Aspects of this class include:

  • Acknowledging the realities of your scene partner

  • Scenic development: Finding the Highways and Bi-ways of a scene to extend its length

  • Managing context without getting in your head (the who/what/where/when/why/etc.)

  • Creating specific, surprising choices

  • Playing with Opposites and Curve Balls

  • Creating and playing with multiple patterns or games in a scene

  • In-depth three person and group scene work

  • Protecting and Playing the Freak

  • Learning how to repair a scene that isn’t working

  • Managing forms and style

  • DaDa scenes (playing fiercely without needing to “make sense”)

  • Justification: how to use it not out of fear but as a tool.

  • Personal challenge and goals based on individual feedback

Prerequisite: Students must have completed AP2 to take this course.

This class will culminate in an optional student showcase at The Annoyance on the final Sunday of the term.

Classes meet once a week on the same day each week, M-Thu 6:30-9pm and Sun 1-3:30pm

Note: Registration is Non-Refundable.

Please be sure to read through our policies prior to registering.
