Sustaining Scenes (with Adam Cawley)
You’ve participated in an opening, listened to a monologue or started from nothing, then you initiate a scene. Cool. Now what? Well, you’ve got to sustain that scene for up to 3-5 minutes. In this class you’ll learn how to break scenes down into two parts. Verse and Chorus. Information and fun. We can create multiple paths for heightening characters, environment and physicality. Cause we all like being on stage longer, ya?
Wednesdays, 7 to 9 pm, August 5 – 26 (with Adam Cawley)
