Sustaining Scenes (with Adam Cawley)



You’ve participated in an opening, listened to a monologue or started from nothing, then you initiate a scene. Cool. Now what? Well, you’ve got to sustain that scene for up to 3-5 minutes. In this class you’ll learn how to break scenes down into two parts. Verse and Chorus. Information and fun. We can create multiple paths for heightening characters, environment¬†and physicality. Cause we all like being on stage longer, ya?
