Focusing on depth instead of breadth, the class will read two plays and perform scenes from them. Students will hone their analytical skills and spark their creative impulses to flesh out their characters so that they truly live on stage in front of us.
This class will focus on listening, liberating the imagination, responding spontaneously, physical and vocal specificity and committing to choices. Students will learn how to apply their skills to developing a clear, radiating character.
