Performance Ensemble
THEA 390
Fall 2019
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

Since theater is an art of collaboration, this course will offer advanced acting, directing, and playwriting students an opportunity to develop their skills in an ensemble environment and to collaborate on creative practice. Students will explore creating text, embodying performance, and developing an understanding of dynamic space with the goal of engaging collaborative processes. Techniques of storytelling, negotiation of differences in communication, and developing a coherent and cohesive theatrical event will be explored. Students will go through all stages of research, improvisation, rehearsal, and analysis of preparing a theatrical performance for an invited audience in a workshop structure.

This course will NOT fulfill an advanced directing requirement for students interested in pursuing senior theses in directing. This course provides an additional level of performance training beyond the core courses in acting, directing, and playwriting.
