‘When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. ‘
In this new course, you will concentrate on the fundamentals and joys of really great scene work. No frills, no structures, just two people and (sometimes) a suggestion. Over ten weeks, Artistic Director Jules Munns will introduce you to ten styles of scene drawn from different improv traditions, You will look at how they are structured, what powers them and when they might be used.
Treating this not as a set of restrictions, but as useful tools and shortcuts to shape your scenes, you will learn how to get the most out of your scene and therefore have the most fun. You will gain an understanding of how you like to play and what you can bring to a scene, as well as expanding your range and flexibility of play by learning how to combine different scene types.
This course covers:
“Let me tell you something” – Point of view scenes
“I thought I was the only one” – Agreement scenes
“You know what I like about you?” – Relationship scenes
