POINT. SCENE WORK Project
FOUR TEACHERS - ONE AUTHOR
POINT IS CONTINUING 'POINT.SCENE WORK' PROJECT
4 DIFFERENT ACTING TECHNIQUES would work on one author.
This time it would be WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.
Pick one or more teachers to approach the same author through different angles of the various acting techniques.
No matter which class you pick -you would jump in a new world - blending of text and acting method. All the participants would be matched with partners and given scenes or monologues from Shakespeare's plays, based on their personalities.
Scenes would be sent to each participant a week before the class for preparation.
As actors we usually explore different acting techniques, and sometimes it brings us to the point, where we forget the original purpose of that.
The greatness in acting always about being truthful, no matter, which tools are we using for that.
We decided to go back to the basics of this idea- telling the truthful story- and came up with the «Scene work» class concept.
What if we take the same author and the same scenes from his plays and work on this specific material in classes with different acting techniques.
What we are curios about is that how the same text would work, if you start to develop it using absolutely different tools.
At the same time – we know already the answer.
Because at the end of the day - it's all about telling the truthful, authentic story- no matter what approach are you choosing in order to explore the text or the character.
What we are curious about – is to watch how –no matter how different all the techniques are- it would all come to one simple formula – how to be YOU on set or on stage and how to connect with the story you telling to the audience.
