Advanced Scene Study Summer Bootcamp with Victor Lirio
This intensive workshop will deeply explore the play’s core circumstance, relationships, meaning, character work, and clarity of action. Actors are provided a safe venue provoking their creative thinking, examining the play and scenes ‘beyond the words,’ and utilizing actor skills such as subtext, point of concentration, physical life, active listening, as well as the exploration of the conditioning forces within the context and world of the play.
Classes open to adults at all levels of training or experience. Mandatory rehearsals outside of class required.
