Presented by: Mercedes Ruehl –
Welcome! We’re glad you’re interested in taking Scene Study – Studio Practice with Mercedes Ruehl at HB Studio. For Winter Term 2020, Ms. Ruehl will be teaching two classes:
- Tuesday 10-week class
- Thursday class offered in two 5-week parts (Part A & B)
Both classes are open by invitation only. We ask you to please read the below information carefully before proceeding.
FOR NEW STUDENTS of Ms. Ruehl: We invite you to apply for either the Tuesday or Thursday class. If applying for the Thursday class, new students are required to sign up for the full ten weeks by enrolling in both 5-week parts (Parts A&B). Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis and you will be contacted on the status of your application. Apply at this link.
FOR RETURNING/PREVIOUSLY APPROVED STUDENTS of Ms. Ruehl: We invite you to register for either the Tuesday class or the Thursday class without submission or audition. If you have previously completed a class with Ms. Ruehl, you have the option to sign up for just a single 5-week section of the Thursday class (Part A or B). Students who have not previously completed a class with Ms. Ruehl must enroll for the full 10 weeks (both Parts A & B).
This course is for professional performers who desire to return to, or maintain an ongoing relationship with a dynamic and fertile state of learning. The goal: to use the specifics of language, action, subtext, circumstance, and relationships in order to connect with the work at the deepest most personal level. You are encouraged to push boundaries with the aim of building ever more complex characters and situations, allowing and exploring what is powerful, unexpectedly revealed.
Expected rehearsal time outside of class: 3+ hours/week
