ACTORS’ LAB: MAKING THE SCENE

How do actors make the scene? How do they bring fictional words on a page to believable life on the stage? How do you make the play’s truth your truth? This session of the Actors’ Lab will explore contemporary approaches to this fundamental challenge. Classwork will include exercises in voice, body and imagination, silent improvisation, masks and clowning, along with guided, rehearsed in-class scene work. The class will attend the Live Arts production of The Electric Baby. The class is open to all, with or without previous training and/or experience.
