A "build" in a scene arises energetically/emotionally, sequentially and increasingly (from a deeper and deeper place, as it were) within each and all characters in a scene as each character has to continually deal with the ongoing increasing resistance (and non-defeat) of their respective opponents; until at the end of a scene, the built-up intensity of each character is released in climax. Sounds like group sex, doesn't it? Should be. Since drama, and acting, at least as we in the West know it, reportedly came from the orgiastic Dionysian rites (passionate choral dancing) of pre-Athenian Greeks.
