Character. Conflict. Language. A scene. Effective scenes show a character’s identity and inclinations.They signal psychological preoccupations, rivalries, reveal motives. In a good scene vocabulary and rhythm act as DNA, make a character live. A good scene can be remarkable art. Fascinating longer works can then evolve. The workshop will present performance texts as examples of effective scenes. Scene studies will include works by August Wilson, Beckett, Suzan Lori Parks, Lynn Nottage, Brecht and others. Exercises will be used to prompt and inspire student writing. Student works will be read and discussed weekly. Rehearsed readings of students' works by professional actors will follow periodically. We want to create an ongoing workshop that inspires new works.. This workshop is for the experienced and less experienced.
