× Acting is the process of learning how to be an expressive and elastic human! In this course, we’ll explore a survey of techniques including Neutral Mask, Anton Chekhov techniques, and the ever-popular Stanislavski method of script analysis (method acting). We’ll begin with ensemble building activities, explore monologue analysis and performance, and work toward a final scene study project in pairs. By the end of the course, you’ll have a monologue to take forward to auditions and a firm introduction to the etiquette and process expected in most conventional performance theatre and film environments. You will also experience and share in a deepened vulnerability, emotional elasticity and awareness.
