In this Nursery/Maydays Online Two Forms Course you’ll study a pair of formats that will push you into the changes of pace and focus that make for a great show.
In Four Track we’ll interlace dynamic group scenes with heartfelt two-person scenes, while in the Pretty Flower we’ll create a core world to revisit time and again after flights of comic exploration. We’ll learn how to take the energy of bold ensemble play, and pack it into the hearts and souls of our characters. And we’ll practise when to seize on our discoveries, and when to set them aside to bring back later, always with joy, and sometimes with devastating effect.
The ultimate show may be a dream destination, but this course will leave you inspired to make the long and thrilling journey.
● Matching scenes: dynamic, creative and surprising group scenes – all stemming from total commitment to a shared point of view
● Grounded scenes: patience, stakes, discovery – the heart of any truly memorable show
● Runs: bursts of invention brimming with comic intent
● Callbacks: lightning-fast connections, often very funny, sometimes truly revealing
Min. participants 6, max. participants 12.
