The Playwrights Center of SF -- Master Class with Anthony Clarvoe
13 Ways of Looking at a Character with Anthony Clarvoe
Writing drama is writing people. Not just any people: people who want things from each other, badly, now, and act to try to get them. But a cast of characters isn't just a bunch of desiring people; it's a constellation of ways to be in the world. It's a web of relationships. A character is an opportunity for an actor to show the world what she has to share about human experience. How do we do all this, while telling our stories and exploring our themes? Award-winning, internationally produced playwright and teacher Anthony Clarvoe will share a baker's dozen (and probably a few more) ways to bring your people to life.
