SCRIPT AS SCORE WITH MARTI LYONS
This class is an intensive scene study with an focus on analysis of punctuation, scoring, and language in contemporary work by playwrights such as Calamity West, Christopher Oscar Peña, Lucas Hnath and Laura Marks. The class will give students tools for a quick analysis of a scene to be used in a cold audition as well as more in depth approaches to decode meaning and instruction imbedded in plays. Though beginning on the page, the class will be largely "on our feet" and engaging the actor's body as well as mind in analysis.
Special Note: A playwright will join the class and offer insight and feedback from a writer's perspective during one week of the class.
Required: Strong theatre background and training, determined by headshot and resume and/or placement audition.
