THEA 0252 - Acting I

Credits: 3

This is a course in the art and craft of the actor, with the goal of assisting students in approaching the task of the actor with greater understanding. It is designed to allow students to develop personal resources and practice on work habits and tools to gain such understanding. The course uses readings to introduce practical and experiential hands-on exercises employed in the classroom to develop the actor's mind, body, and voice; to cultivate a greater personal awareness of self, space, and ensemble; and to develop the imagination as a tool to generate creativity and artistry. This course is primarily focused on acting techniques developed by Stanislavski and his American disciples, although other approaches may also be covered.

Prerequisites: THEA 0151 .
