On this summer term course you will work on your existing skills of imagination, voice, body and space to develop scene and script work. The course will adopt a workshop style format and will consist of improvisation, script work and technical approaches supported by a scene selected from a range of chosen playwrights. You will continue to explore the practical skills to work with other people, to help build confidence and creative potential.
You will need to complete an Individual Learning Plan and be prepared to work in a group.
You will engage with scene exploration and development, turning points, stepping stones, character journeys, space, pace and rhythm, and off script improvisation. All students are welcome. Learning progresses as the year continues. Continuing learners will be expected to build on their existing level of learning.
Please note: although acting and drama covers specific content each term, the course is developmental over the whole year. If you sign up for the full three terms (courses A, B and C) at the start of the academic year e.g. August / September you will be entitled to the early bird discount.
