The Actor's Experience|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
The Actor's Experience is an introduction to the practices of acting in rehearsal with a director. It is held in conjunction with THEA281- Intro to Directing; students will be working directly with the student directors in that class. Basic aspects of staging, collaboration, script, and character analysis will be covered. Commitment to attending scheduled rehearsals is vital. Each actor will have the opportunity to perform in both a short-form scene (mid-term) and long-form scene (final), performed in front of the class and invited guests.
This class is a chance to be in community with other students interested in theater, and practice collaboration and care. Together students will consider why theater matters, and how theater-makers can offer more care to themselves, each other, and our audience. Students will participate in in-class staging exercises, outside rehearsals with peers, reading discussions, and viewing plays.
The Actor's Experience is a half-credit class intended for majors and non-majors at varying levels of experience and is held in conjunction with the Intro to Directing class.
