This course is geared toward students with or without performance experience.

Together we will establish a common language to define the most important tools for an actor. Through a series of games and exercises, students develop new skills and practice making bolder, clearer choices within improvised, devised or established scenes. The goals are to create confidence in any sort of performance situation and to find ways of applying acting skills to other academic and outside experiences.

Evaluation is based on participation in class activities and discussion, successful completion of all performance projects including productive rehearsal time, and an organized portfolio of written responses. There will be at least one field trip. Default grading option for this course is CR/NC.
