Spring 2020

Taught By: Stephen Brown-Fried and Scott Whitehurst

Section: A

CRN: 2395

Credits: 3

In Classical Studio: Acting 1, the Actor acquired objective skills--how to: (1) marry truthful contemporary acting technique to classical verse, (2) decode iambic pentameter, (3) set the word against the word, (4) listen and hear Willie Shakes’ “clues,” (4) “freshly mint” imagery, (5) use sound devices actively (alliteration, onomatopoeia, etc), and (6) “take the audience along.” In Classical Studio: Acting 2, the Actor will learn subjective skills: (1) Irony & Ambiguity, (2) Passion & Coolness, and (3) Interpreting & Crafting the Character. The course's lesson: crafting a character is the marriage of objective and subjective skills, plus the Actor's idea for the part.
