Event Details

Level: Intermediate

If you don’t care, we don’t care. Every character needs some motivation, point of view, or something to fight for. It can be almost anything, but you need an objective. That clash of characters’ motives is what drives the scene. Explore how playing with emotional investment, commitment, and heightening, can help you make strong choices you can hold onto while supporting your scene partner in scenes that are as fun to play as they are to watch!

What to expect in this elective:

Initiating a scene with a clear point of view.

Discovering objective, relationship, and status in the moment.

Supporting your partner by being true to your character’s POV

This Intermediate elective runs Sunday 7 November, 5.00-7.30 pm BST.

Intermediate (3 months+) These classes will be opportunities to add tools to your growing toolbox. Normally these classes will expect players to be confident playing scenes. These classes will provide practise and specific new skills.
