T-ST 71010 - Acting for Non-Majors
Acting can be exhilarating, cathartic, and also difficult to do. It is a discipline, as specific as singing, dancing, or even rocket science. It is a practice in teamwork, trust, vulnerability, and letting others in. Through a variety of exercises, improvisational games, ensemble work, and acting approaches, students will explore the essential elements of acting, creative expression, and collaboration in the theater. Students will learn a variety of techniques to: • release tension and free up the voice and the body, and to connect to one’s impulses and intuition. • develop heightened concentration, sensory awareness, listening and reacting, communication, teamwork, and spontaneity. • create a character. • use character objectives, tactics, obstacles and stakes to communicate with fellow performers and the audience. • express one’s emotion authentically using the voice, body, and imagination. • create ensemble and work in relationship with people, objects and places. Ultimately, through in-class devised scene sharings, acting students will convey stories, ideas, emotions, and provocative questions that reflect or challenge humanity.
