Faculty of Arts
This course provides classes in training for performance. Typically the areas covered will be: improvisation and impulse; voice and vocal technique; movement and acrobatic technique; acting analysis and action study. A lot is covered in one semester and the momentum of the course is strong. Classes involve full and active participation and attendance is vital and part of assessment. The classes are taught by a range of tutors from inside the University and from the theatre community and profession. Students are expected to keep a workbook, which is a journal of work done and a record of progress and process. The course ends with an assessed solo performance by each student.
NB: enrolment is limited to 25 students, with selection based on 1) preference given to Drama majors; 2) preference given to Drama minors; 3) GPA with consideration given to theatre/performance experience. Early enrolment is strongly advised as an initial selection will be completed 10 December with further selection on a first-come, first-enrolled basis only if places remain unfilled.
