Virtual Fall Classes
Throughline scene study
with KAREN KOHLHAAS
october 5 – december 14, 2022 | wednesdays 7 – 10PM ET
no class 11/22
For actors with previous scene study training (Atlantic or otherwise). Actors will work on substantial scenes from great plays, and will also use Practical Aesthetics script analysis and performance techniques to plot choices for an entire role. Scenes will come into class several times, increasing in length each time. This is an ideal opportunity to learn how to bring specificity, variety and strong storytelling and character work to acting in plays, film, and TV.
Actors will make specific choices that are connected to the whole play, build stamina and concentration, and work with strength, vulnerability and playfulness moment to moment. We will use staging techniques to bring out the physical aspects of each role, and for compelling storytelling utilizing the best of on-camera and onstage principles. The class is for those willing to bring the highest levels of professionalism to their preparation, collaboration with their partners, and to their observation and response to the work of others.
Prerequisite: Participants must have previous acting and scene study training.
The class ends with an invited online performance.
Technique Lab I
october 17 – december 12, 2022 | Mondays 7:30 – 9:30PM ET

An introduction to Practical Aesthetics, the Atlantic Technique. Learn how to analyze a scene, play the action truthfully, and maintain an emotional connection to your scene partner. Together this results in strong and compelling performance choices. Exercises will be drawn from Script Analysis and Moment Lab, two fundamental classes in the Atlantic training. Outside rehearsal time is required between the weekly classes.
Application and interview required.
This class is one portion of a three-part course. Graduates who have successfully completed all three levels of Technique Labs and have a strong teacher recommendation are eligible for an exclusive audition opportunity for a panel of Atlantic Theater Company Artistic staff.

“Online learning with Zoom has proven to be more intimate, more fulfilling, and more creatively exuberant and artistic than I could have ever imagined. I am eternally grateful to this virtual platform, and to Atlantic, for providing such a rich, ongoing safe-haven in which to cultivate, express, and further hone my craft.”
– Steve Remeika
“I could not have imagined something like acting technique could be taught over Zoom, but after these 5 weeks I saw such a dramatic change in my work and performance, I now know it can be.”
– Summer Intensive Student
