Section: A

CRN: 14523

Credits: 2

Building on the fundamentals of STORY 1, THE SCENE will explore through performance the intersection of text analysis and physical/vocal embodiment. Beginning with defining the “world of the play,” students will investigate how theater artists can connect their contemporary sensibilities to a playwright’s intent utilizing text analysis tools and imagination-based exercises. Students will dive deep into selections from both contemporary and classic playwrights, breaking down the work in order to better understand how each scene fits into the scope of a larger story. By the end of the course, students will be able to identify the essential structures that create a successful scene. THE SCENE will teach actors, directors, and playwrights skills that will allow them to strengthen their relationships with dramatic text in performance.
