Description

Level Four dives deep into an advanced form (e.g. Evente, MonoScene, Deconstruction, Sleepover, Harold+, The Movie, Choose Your Own Adventure) and works on that form with the singular focus need to create a great show. In The Medusa, all performers are on stage at all times, alternating between speaking roles and playing inanimate objects, with every scene seamlessly transforming into the next. The eight class sessions are followed by a four week run of shows, giving students an enhanced opportunity to learn by doing, over time, in front of a real audience. Prerequisite: Magnet Level Three
