Acting I
THEA 245
Spring 2022
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This studio course will explore the fundamentals of acting and how they are applicable to all areas of life, regardless of vocation. A wide range of exercises will be used to develop relaxation, concentration, and the imagination, and to free the body and voice of tension. Students will examine the creative process practically and theoretically, through exercises including games, improvisation, monologues, and scene work. Emphasis will be placed on building confidence, cultivating each artist's individual voice, and approaching the work with a deep sense of curiosity, generosity, joy, and serious play.

For those who have already taken Acting 1 and wish to take it again for credit, please email Professor Oliveras directly for consideration as such.

This counts as a theater arts course for the theater major.
