Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

This course is designed to explore intermediate acting using several approaches from contemporary and classic acting disciplines. Students will cultivate skills in acting for camera and stage, including analyzing, improvisation, visualization, breathing, relaxation, and rehearsing techniques. Students will increase their self-confidence, cultivate their public speaking ability, and sharpen their 'presence'. Students will continue to build the vocabulary and conceptual framework necessary to analyze and discuss film and theatre and will gain a broad awareness, understanding, and appreciation for the craft of acting. Students will apply these skills through scene and monologue work, readings, script analysis, and group exercises.
