Scott's classes and workshops are called PHYSICAL ACTIONING. They build on the vocabulary of simple action verbs to generate an entire set of tools from first read to performance that integrates the latest ideas and language of embodied cognition from the beginning. Constructed as a series of experiments and exercises, it leads actors through a rigorous examination of their own habits, and links those tools to a careful look at creating character and their application with collaborators in rehearsal and performance. Physical Actioning creates a modern toolkit for the actor’s work that keeps the exploration embodied at every step and empowers them with specific techniques to apply regardless of the medium of performance. Scott is an Assistant Arts Professor at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program. He has taught workshops and classes at LAByrinth Theater Company, universities, schools, and theatres around the U.S. and internationally. He holds an M.F.A. in Directing and a B.F.A. in Acting from The Theatre School, DePaul University. He is also a certified teacher of the Feldenkrais Method® of Movement Education.
