The Ongoing Professional Workshop is a place for professionals to work. This class will explore in-depth Scene Study, with particular focus on the vitality of moment-to-moment experience and the full pursuit of actions.

The intrinsic value of this communal exploration is that creative discoveries made by one actor are applicable to all.
