6. Script Analysis, Context and Character

An exploration of Script Analysis, Context and Character - Outlining ways in which students can enhance their performance, bringing a fully rounded character to life on stage.

The Workshops

In addition to the lectures, we have recorded five 45-minute workshops on:

•            The Bruiser Approach and Ethos

•            Chorus and Choreography

•            Improvisation and Physicality

•            Sound Effects and Literalising Text

•            Script Analysis, Context and Character

These workshops show how different games and exercises can be used to explore these elements of the Bruiser style practically in the classroom/rehearsals.

These can either be watched by the teacher to help them design sessions using these workshop plans, or watched by students to see how Bruiser go about using exercises in the development and exploration of their work.
