Presented by Snowglobe Theatre Founder and Artistic Director Peter Giser, this workshop is available for actors of all levels of skill and experience, and will focus on how to play objectives in scenes.
The objective – what you need in a scene – is an incredibly important element to acting a scene, as it will determine what you’re trying to get from your scene partner, how you’ll try to get it, and also what sort of obstacles you’ll be dealing with. Using scenes from modern plays we’ll explore how to choose and act out an objective, how this can affect the interpretation and tone of the scene, and how it creates opportunities with your scene partner. The choice of objective and how connected we are to them will usually determine whether a performance makes sense or not, and whether things truly come alive while acting.
The workshop will take place in 3-hour sessions over eight weeks, on Mondays between January 6th and March 2nd, 2020. The cost of the entire workshop (24 hours total) is $150, payable in advance. The location will be the Minimain space at Mainline Theatre. Once registration is complete scenes will be assigned in advance so that you will have a chance to read the play prior to our initial work on the scenes.
