Dig Deep Scenework: Invest vs. Invent Beginner to Intermediate
Saturday 9/15 - 1:45pm-4:30pm AS220 Blackbox, 95 Empire St, Providence, RI
Stop thinking so much in your scene and start listening, reacting and feeling. Dig Deep offers students the skills and techniques necessary to listen and gift their scene-partners as well as themselves. By digging into the very first moment of the scene, we will extract characters with a point of view and an emotional grounding. By accepting the gifts we usually pass right by, we’ll embrace in-depth character choices: making comedic moments easy and heightening the scene effortless.
