Prerequisite: IMPROV 601 & Teacher Recommendation, 18 & Over Only
ABOUT THE CLASS:
The Pretty Flower begins with a group scene that cannot be edited with a sweep, but instead tag edits are used to heighten and explore characters and situations in a series of short scenes. Each of these cutaways (or petals) is eventually sweep edited, which brings us back to the group scene. The petal scenes lend themselves to extended tag runs and playing faster. The source scene, conversely, is a more grounded and patient section of the show to which we return and reset the energy.
