The Character Arc: Multi-Scene Study

The Character Arc: Multi-Scene Study

Advanced/Pro

Playing From Your Strengths The Frisch Approach
  • 10-Week (summer session begins Sunday morning, June 13.)
  • Limit 6 actors (Designed to work with European time zones.)
  • Two 4G LTE cellular.
  • 10% “Early Bird” - 5/16, Multi-class, and Couples Discount will apply.

Offers the rare opportunity to work on character progression and development, the “through-line of action,” throughout an entire play or screenplay.  This class provides a far more comprehensive experience of building and playing a character than is possible in the usual scene study class. 

Actors tackle the multi-scene development of characters, making decisions about character needs, motivations, physical life, tone, beats and units, rhythmic variety, etc. as their characters progress and transition throughout the script.  Participants explore the emotional score of their characters and the nature of changing relationships. 

Partners will be given or select the first set of scenes and characters before class begins so that we can hit the ground running.  Possible “rehearsal showing” during the final session of class.

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to complete the session and are finally responsible for the session if they attend the first session.
