Spring 2020 not offered
This is an advanced acting class in studio format focusing on the skills of voice, speech and movement in current practice as adapted by professional directors and actors. Students will follow a progression of in-class exercises designed to respond to textual demands through ongoing scene study techniques, vocal explorations and physical commitment in performance of heightened text. Examination of text will culminate in close study of Shakespeare's First Folio and its clues to performance. Students will study, analyze, memorize, rehearse and perform scenes and monologues.
