Kim Hines: The Art of Revision
Freshman drama students at the Southern New Jersey Academy of Performing Arts are learning new ways to turn ideas into dramatic scripts
From THE PERFORMANCE LAB studios in the Twin Cities [Minnesota], Actress/Playwright Kim Hines coaches the kids in two wild interactive sessions.
Session I GIFTS
Now, it's your turn. You'll present your gift -- of yourself, from
your own life -- to Kim and to the other kids. Kim will work with you
to bring out the dramatic values in each situation. Try to use the
screen itself in your performance.
Session II THE DRAMATIC IDEA

many] will you choose to tell?
CAUGHT --- !
This is a photo of an improvisation exercise, played out in studios over 1000 miles apart. Kim's the little sister, caught eavesdropping. She gets sent to her room...
Session III (soon!) THE PLAY
Here are two versions of the same script,
a play commissioned from Kim Hines by the George Street Playhouse in
New Brunswick, New Jersey.
