AP3: Scene Work: Thursday

AP3 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

Students must have completed AP2 to take AP3.
