Tactics (Adaptations and Adjustments)

Which way do I go?...


TACTICS or ADAPTATIONS: (adjustments), is really overcoming a physical obstacle (the HURDLE) in achieving an aim.

The ACTOR MUST ANSWER

 What do I do?” and “Why do I do it?” 

Your Tactics (Adaptations) answer:  “How do I do it?” 

The "what" = the action 
The "why" = the aim (The objective) 
The "how" = the tactics (the way in which you go about getting it)

Identify the "Hurdle/Obstacle"
***There is always a hurdle/obstacle creating the conflict with your character in theater. It could be a small or big hurdle***
 
The actor's job is to play 
ALL parts of the scenic task

The Tactics (or adaptations) depend a lot on a stage partner's behavior, tactics, choices etc. Also they can depend upon other obstacles (and givens) in the scene. 

This will cause a release emotionally if good choices are done well.

              ______________________________________
  
EXERCISE 1 - 
(the "Want") is given to you

In this game the actor must play through the options and then tell the class what the tactic was that lead to the action

PART A 

SCENE - "I want what is on the other side of that..."

chair
door
fence

Now the actor must build the scene by making the want specific (what's on the other side...?), then putting something in the way of getting what they want, and then figuring out how you get past it.

Before performing the task:

WRITE DOWN:
What is it that you want? (the super-objective)
What is in your way? (the hurdle/obstacle)
Three ways to get around that hurdle (tactics)



_________________________________________________
TRY ANOTHER!!!

PART B

"I want what is on the inside of that..."

box
car
safe
house
