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
