Acting Theories is an advanced seminar exploring key 20th-century concepts and theories about the actor's role on the production of meaning on the stage. The course draws on seminal texts about the nature of acting, including scholarly articles and writings by practitioners. Additionally, students will partner to engage in the in-depth study of a given scene from Shakespeare's MEASURE FOR MEASURE, performing it in four different acting styles at different points in the semester.
