Scene builder

29th April 2005 at 01:00
Philip Pullman is delighted with the new interactive scene-builder content which, sponsored by BT, is being added to Stagework.

The website already has film of rehearsals and interviews with the stars and director of the National Theatre's production of His Dark Materials.

Now students can watch director Matt Wilde and the lead actors as they discuss and try out different ways of playing the scene in which Will and Lyra kiss for the first time. This gives the student choices, which, Pullman says, "makes the viewer an editor". He thinks it is a brilliant resource but will be even better when teachers copy it and put the director's methods into practice.
