THEA 110 Acting I

This course is an exploration and survey of the basic principles of the art and craft of acting. Exercises to free, develop, and condition the voice and body, and to develop the powers of observation, concentration, sensory perception, imagination, and invention will be employed. Students will work in ensemble situations and experience the process of theatrical realization of a script. The main purpose of this course is to help students develop an awareness of their instrument: their voice, body and imagination; to learn how to truthfully employ it in the situations of scenes and improvisations. Students are also encouraged to take artistic risks and build confidence in their ability to perform.
