    Course Profile:
    Staging communicates subtext to the audience and proper staging can stimulate an emotional truth within the actor.

    In the three-day Staging Workshop, ten directors will work with scripted material and professional actors in a process of exploration of the multi-faceted tool of staging. Day one is exploring the two-character scene. Day Two explores the three-character scene. And Day Three the four-character scene. Also incorporated into the process is the concept and practice of staging for the camera.
