As actors, having a space to flex our muscles is vital to being able to give our talent room to grow. Scene study is training in the process of “breaking down” a scene. Making decision based on the writer’s information about the character. What they want (objective). The relationships between the characters in the scenes and the characters referred to (which of the seven emotions). The character’s inner monologue (fueled by the previous discoveries) and the importance of what is between the lines.
Because we learn by watching as well as doing, we need a minimum of 12 people in class. That gives students a chance to learn the skills both as the actor and as the director. Developing the skill to make sure their intention shows up in their performance(.) Crafting the moments, emotions, intentions, and desires of the character, is the skill set sought after by directors on a set. Knowing to “raise the stakes” and not “play the end of the scene” are techniques that develop with time and practice and mark the differences between actors.
