Acting with Text will grow and improve the acting skills of the improvisor through playing scenes from classic contemporary plays such as Chekhov, Brecht and Pinter to name a few.
Students will learn:
- Playing an intention: action and objective
- Being changed by what is said to you
- Understanding your body in space on stage
- Use of stage space
- Awareness of vocal projection
- Emotional connection
- Character development
With a limited class size of 6 students, this course is designed to give each person an active and intensive experience. Students will work in pairs on a scene selected by course instructor. Attendance at all 3 classes is mandatory.
Note: this course will require students to do work at home such as memorisation.
