One of the final components of the scoring process is to assign tactics or action verbs to the physical actions. Reverse scoring heightens the element of vocal action by engaging the actor's body and voice with intention simultaneously. It also allows for more freedom in the articulation of intentionality that some students find liberating after using verbs that hold no real meaning for them. The action verbs they chose came from the vocabulary of their first two years of acting classes: to charm, to guilt, to seduce, etc., but when they released the physical score, the specificity of their intentionality disappeared. The text was ‘flat’: the voice and body connection to it had dissipated. Reverse scoring is built upon layers of the pedagogy and training that need to be in place for it to be effective. The essential components are a physical score comprised of real actions solidly foregrounded in the rules of composition and proficiency in ‘sounding the body.
