This Month’s Focus

Part One: The Road To Elysium

Today’s Class

EA First Rehearsal + Rehearsal Report

Today’s Target

​​We want to master the art of rehearsal. 

​Doing the work we need to prepare, to transform, to grow.

This week we’re focusing on where our work begins. The first rehearsal. And we’re adding a second tool to ensure you always have your own back when rehearsal is over. 

Two powerful new teammates for our craft section - one gifting you the ability to live the script, deeply connect to character, and remain eager for collaboration. The other captures your work with a clear, trustworthy lens - turning rehearsal unknowns into deep, character knowings and rehearsal success into a time-tailored gameplan for growth.
