For those with previous training and experience. Students work every time on a scene assigned by Ms. Patten and bring it in at different stages of rehearsal. You’ll also be investigating the use of the self, what you’re “right” for, how to “stay with” yourself-particularly helpful if you too easily lose your own impulses. Once you have your own truth, you can begin to find someone else’s. Learn how to break down a scene organically, progress beat to beat through the given circumstances, and know what it is for the event of the scene to occur “for real for real.” Solidify your interpretation and put your thumb print on the part.
