Physical actions, working with props, environment and text are addressed. The semester will include emphasis on relaxation; sensory exercises designed to develop imagination, focus, concentration and emotional openness; exercises for physical and vocal freedom, and listening exercises in order to create an organic moment to moment reality. You will discover how to make compelling, informed choices and how to take actions and choose behaviors that both illustrate and illuminate the human condition. Course work will include readings on acting, writing about the craft of acting, observations, in class exercises, written critical analysis of theatre performances, scene work, and the reading of contemporary plays.
