Foundations of Acting 2
Fall 2024
Taught By: Susan Cameron
Section: A

CRN: 12570

Credits: 3

This course deepens the skills and techniques that form the foundation of the art of acting: relaxation; sensory exercises designed to develop imagination, focus, concentration and emotional openness; exercises for physical and vocal freedom; listening exercises in order to create an organic moment to moment reality; physical actions; working with props. Alongside exploration of circumstances, text, and the world of the play, these skills support an actor’s ability to create an organic truth on stage. Building on this work, students will discover how to make compelling, informed choices; how to take actions; and how to 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.
