THR 250 - Acting Process

Course unit(s): 1
Meets GAR: Meets general academic requirement AR.
Prerequisite(s): THR 100 - Theatre & Society: An Historical Introduction  
The beginning class in the acting sequence, this class lays the foundations for the ultimate goal of the acting program: to create actors who know how to work on a role within the context of the play and who have flexibility in their craft.  The focus will be on acting process, including relaxation work; how to critique; commitment to language, sound, emotional connection, and movement; the active choice; and actor’s text analysis.  Actors will be judged on their individual growth and also on their ability to work as an ensemble member within the class.  This course is the building block leading into scene work and a requirement of the class will be a fully staged scene.  Possible readings from Stanislavsky, Peter Brook, Chekhov, Williams, Shephard, and other writers.  Films may be shown as an example of craft. Class meets for six hours a week.
