ABOUT THE SCENE WORK MASTERCLASS
This Scene Work Masterclass helps to improve an actor’s technique, as well as give them the opportunity to be directed by Paul Haggis and see if they are able to perform to a director’s specification. Scene Work is important because it allows an actor to see if all the techniques they use in class can be harnessed to create an honest and dynamic performance. It is also important because the actor needs to focus on the other actor. Reacting is just as important as acting, if the actor fails to react to their scene partner then the believability diminishes. Scene study gives the actors the opportunity to work together and remember that it is not "all about them.” Scene Work is a workout for actors to make sure they are ready when the opportunity arrives. You’ve already trained – now you need to harness those skills to your performance – to every performance!
This Masterclass is simply the best opportunity to flex the actors acting muscles and refine their craft on a consistent basis. It is a workout where actors test their performance abilities in a safe and playful environment. Through working on scenes of various genres, the actors discover their strengths and weaknesses with the help and under the direction of Paul Haggis.
