About the Session
In this session, we will analyze the structure of the ensemble cast, using examples from film and literature. Through visual approaches, we will imagine methodologies for utilizing, manipulating, and breaking the form of the ensemble cast. How can we wield a multiplicity of voices to build and release tension, develop a narrative, and deconstruct the expectations of the form?
